Bail reform is needed because the current system often disproportionately
impacts low-income individuals and can lead to unfair treatment. Here
are a few reasons why bail reform is necessary:
The current bail system can lead to the detention of low-income individuals
who are unable to afford bail, even if they have not been convicted of
a crime. This can result in the loss of jobs, housing, and other negative
impacts on their lives.
The inability to afford bail can also create a financial burden for families
and communities, as they may need to provide financial assistance in order
to secure the release of a loved one.
Bail can also be used as a tool for prosecutors to coerce plea bargains,
as defendants may feel pressure to plead guilty in order to secure their
release from detention.
The current bail system can lead to overcrowding in detention facilities,
as individuals who are unable to afford bail may be held in detention
for extended periods of time.
Overall, bail reform is necessary to address these and other issues with
the current system and to create a more fair and just criminal justice system.
