Judges encouraged to lower bail amounts
from The Herald
Indiana courts are working on methods to lower bail costs to make it more fair for people who are poor and can't pay high bonds. The courts are pushing judges to be more judicious in setting bail amounts. "Our superiors, they are pushing the idea that you shouldn't set high bails," Superior Judge Mark McConnell said at a Dubois County Community Corrections Board meeting.
