New protocol on bail system would increase workload of pretrial services in Harris County
from Houston Public Radio
Changes proposed this week for Harris County’s bail system would entail that the pretrial services division would have a much bigger workload. As Houston Chronicle reporter Gabrielle Banks has reported, Democratic judges elected in November have approved comprehensive revisions to the bail system and plan to present the new protocol to federal judge Lee Rosenthal to ask her that she authorizes its implementation as a foundation for a settlement regarding a lawsuit filed in 2016.
