Atlanta — money and incarceration
Class action suit in Atlanta claims the states bail system discriminates against the poor ... but does it?
from The Choctaw Sun-Advocate via U.S. Bail Reform
A class action case that was heard last week in the U.S District Court in Atlanta could have implications on those posting bail in other states, including Alabama, and potentially affecting suspects arrested in Choctaw County. The case was brought to the court by a Calhoun, Georgia, jail inmate who alleged that he was discriminated against when he was arrested because he was unable to pay the $160 cash bond required for his release.
