With the new bail reform criminals are being released from jail without bail being set. The rules require judges to impose the “least restrictive conditions” that will assure people return to court. Those include supervised release, travel restrictions and, for some serious offenses, electronic monitoring. Prosecutors and law enforcement officials say the law takes a critical decision away from judges. Even though under the old law judges were supposed to consider only the risk of flight in setting bail, as a practical matter judges still had the discretion to set a higher bail for people with long arrest records or who showed other signs they might commit another crime. We need to give power back to the judges and allow them to have the ability to set bail based on the crimes and the probability the criminal will break the law again.
