Prop 25 in a Minute: Bail Reform

0:01:00 | Clip
Prop 25 eliminates cash bail in California and lets judges decide if suspects should be held or freed before trial. Supporters say the state spends too much detaining those who can’t afford bail. Civil rights groups oppose cash bail but say this could allow judges to detain more people deemed high-risk. Bail businesses, which earn a premium for advancing money, say they make communities safer.
