Activists demand Ohio prosecutor follow progressive prosecutors elsewhere, bar requests of cash bail for low-risk defendants
from Cleveland Plain Dealer
Activists are demanding that Cuyahoga County (Ohio) Prosecutor Michael O'Malley's office follow the lead of progressive local prosecutors in other cities around the country and ban his prosecutors from requesting cash bails for low-risk, nonviolent defendants. A dozen organizations sent an open letter to O'Malley asking him to "protect the poor from the ongoing human rights crisis at the Cuyahoga County Jail."
