Opinion in State v. Hon Wein (Goodman) - Supreme Court of the State of AZ (2018): This is an Opinion from the Supreme Court of the State of Arizona in the case of the State of Arizona v. Wein (2017). The Court affirmed the superior court and vacated the court of appeals' opinion. The Court notes that Article 2, section 22(A)(1), of the Arizona Constitution and A.R.S. § 13-3961(A)(2) categorically prohibit bail for all persons charged with sexual assault if “the proof is evident or the presumption great” that the person committed the crime, without considering other facts that may justify bail in an individual case. The Court held "that these provisions, on their face, violate the Fourteenth Amendment’s Due Process Clause" and noted that "[u]nless the defendant is accused of committing sexual assault while already admitted to bail on a separate felony charge, the trial court must make an individualized bail determination before ordering pretrial detention."
