New bail laws in place in Illinois
from Illinois News Network
Bail reform was enacted at the start of the new year in Illinois, with changes in how bond is set. The new law requires courts to consider circumstances of a detainee, and aims to release defendants without requiring that they post a cash bail if they do not pose a threat or are a flight risk. "It emphasizes that there are certain categories of crime where the presumption is for no cash bond to be posted," Gary Farha, the Adams County state's attorney, said.
