Costs for the services will increase.
However, there is a chance to create a fair, sensible system could make the state more efficient in the long term. The county’s chief of the fiscal and policy department was non-partisan. He predicted that California could be able to save $114 million in the event that criminal defendants weren’t allowed to only pay their bail as well as show up at court. The majority of those arrested can’t post bail when they are due.
Since these arguments are so strongly tied to the cost of doing business in the bail bonds business, there’s always going to be some pushback against bills like Nevada Assembly Bill 424. The bail bond industry is pushing the legislature to change the law so that people that are accused of driving drunk can be exempted from certain of these new regulations.
Are There Any Hopes to avert Criminal Justice Reform?
In the absence of a fraction of criminal cases being settled through the court’s orders or a billion dollars in bondsharking revenues that flows through the court system legislators may need to do a lot of work for the foreseeable future if they’re committed to overhauling the country’s criminal justice system.
Federal prisons are full, and the state-run prisons hold sufficient prisoners to house the additional prisoners. States are able to present an argument that is convincing for having less prisoner. The federal government is believed to shifting away from its profit-oriented strategy for prisons. If they could set an example for California and elsewhere, it will be especially welcome.
The sale of firearms is heavily controlled making it harder to get an firearm than for a person to be licensed to drive a vehicle. There seems to be a strange coincidence that there is little problem with California permitting citizens to carry their own guns. Is it because we’re still looking at outdated gun laws? This year, the California Assembly passed several gun reform bills in the past year.
