Candidate Mark Haase proposes cash bail reform in Minnesota's Hennepin County
from Star Tribune
Mark Haase, who is challenging Mike Freeman for Hennepin County (Minnesota) attorney, announced a proposal to reform the cash bail process for defendants. Currently, people who pay bail get the full amount returned after the case is resolved. Those who can't pay the full amount can pay a fee, usually 10 percent, to a bail bond company; that money isn't returned at the case's end, and the person must find a co-signer over 21.
