No Money, No Freedom- The Need for Bail Reform - ACLU 2016

07-10-2017 13:35

Locking up people before trial because they cannot afford to pay bail is a leading cause of mass incarceration in Washington state and elsewhere. Reforming Washington's treatment of people before trial, including the use of money bail, will result in fewer people unnecessarily held behind bars. This is why advocating for fair and effective alternatives to pretrial detention is an important part of the ACLU of Washington’s Campaign for Smart Justice. This paper discusses problems with our current system and offers broad recommendations for reform.
