Criminal justice experts lay out roadmap for bail reform in New Hampshire
from New Hampshire Public Radio
A commission of criminal justice experts convened by lawmakers has issued its recommendations for how New Hampshire should implement bail reform. Among other things, it recommends that the courts keep track of whether defendants commit new offenses while out on bail; that the state pay bail commissioner fees if the defendant is indigent; that victims generally not be required to testify at a bail hearing; and that the state adopt a text messaging system to remind defendants about their court date.
