San Francisco District Attorney ends cash bail for all criminal cases
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin announced a policy on Wednesday that will end cash bail for those being released from custody.
The DA’s office says those being held ahead of their trial will now be based on the risk rather than wealth and poverty. This means people who may be a threat to the community will remain in custody, regardless of how much money they have.
Some are now worried that this may be the beginning of the end of cash bail bonds in California.
Steffan Gibbs, owner of All-Pro Bail Bonds, Inc., was in studio to talk about this.
