Elimination of cash-based bail in California likely to be challenged, experts say
from Press Banner
Last month, California became the first state to completely abolish the cash bail-bond system for suspects awaiting trial. "Today, California reforms its bail system so that rich and poor alike are treated fairly," Governor Jerry Brown said at the signing ceremony for SB 10, the California Money Bail Reform Act. The Governor’s signature on SB 10 mandates that the entire bail bond industry will be out of business, in favor of a "risk-based assessment" of the accused, on October 1, 2019 when the bill goes into effect.
