Criminal-justice reformer questions Malloy's approach to bail
from The Connecticut Mirror
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's proposal to begin an overhaul of Connecticut's bail system with the limited step of eliminating bail for non-violent misdemeanors is viewed by the head of a national reform group as a political compromise of questionable value. Cherise Fanno Burdeen, the executive director of the Pretrial Justice Institute, a well-established group that studies and advocates for bail reform, said she has told the Malloy administration she is unaware of any state that has taken a similar approach.
