A Harris County, New Jersey, case could be the end of cash bail as we know it
from Texas Monthly
Last Wednesday, the first of what would eventually be over 100 inmates were unexpectedly granted early release from the massive Harris County jail in downtown Houston. The inmates had only two things in common: All of them had been arrested for a misdemeanor offense like trespassing or criminal mischief, and none had been able to pay the cash bond set by a hearing officer—which meant that they were stuck in jail until the resolution of their case.
