Advocates call for bail reform after report shows cash bail used in more than half of cases
For several months, volunteers with the Partnership for the Public Good sat in during bail hearings at Buffalo (New York) City Court. Over that time, they witnessed, logged, and recorded 240 hearings. "Bail is not intended to be an amount people cannot afford," said Andrea Ó Súilleabháin, the deputy directory for PPG. "It's not intended to keep them in jail. It's intended to help them come back for court date."
