7 days ago

The Coalition to End Money Bond has released Protecting Pretrial Reform: Two Years of Bond Reform in Cook County, documenting outcomes following the implementation of a local court rule to limit the use of money bond. The report notes that since the Coalition began its work in 2016, the average number of people locked up in Cook County jail on a single day has fallen from 8,500 to 6,000. At the same time, violent crime has fallen eight percent from January to June 2018, when the local rule went into effect, compared to the same period in 2017.
