Fight against money bail in San Francisco snagged on 'evidence'
from Courthouse News
At a hearing, a federal judge lit into a lawyer challenging San Francisco's bail scheme over evidence she said would be inadmissible in a federal court. Phil Telfeyan with Equal Justice Under Law, arguing the case on behalf of a proposed class of arrestees who cannot afford bail but are otherwise eligible for pretrial release in San Francisco, argued other jurisdictions have effectively used other non-monetary methods to ensure arrestees appear in court.
