Georgia County Commission Passes No-Cash Bond Measure
from Athens Banner-Herald
From June 11:
The Athens-Clarke County (Georgia) Commission has voted to stop requiring cash bail for people accused of violating Athens-Clarke County ordinances, allowing them instead to be released on their own recognizance. Commissioners and criminal justice reform advocates hailed the commission's unanimous vote, but also said "The Freedom Act of Athens-Clarke County, Georgia" is just a beginning.
