Description

Pretrial release is a national issue, with critics contending that the longstanding cash bail system keeps many non-violent suspects behind bars just because they can't pay small sums to be freed pending trial. Bail bondsmen insist that they are the best people to ensure that defendants who are released return for court appearances. This session features the chief justice of Arizona, who has led a reform effort, the president of a national organization that deals with the issue, and a reporter who covers it.
