Boots and Bail on the Ground: Assessing the Implementation of Misdemeanor Bail Reforms in Georgia - University of Georgia Law Review 2020

The ACLU of Georgia, working with law professors, computer science students, and student and community volunteers, released a study examining how closely Georgia courts complied with four legal requirements set under recent bail reform legislation and litigation: an evaluation of ability to pay; holding an individualized bail hearing that evaluates a person’s finances within 48 hours of arrest; guaranteed release within 48 hours on a misdemeanor charge; and availability of a public defender when bail is set. Not a single county was in full compliance; most counties satisfied only one or two requirements.
