Illinois AG Submits Argument Appealing Ruling Against Elimination Of Cash Bail

Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul is fighting against a judge’s ruling that halted the elimination of cash bail in the state. The AG’s office filed its initial argument yesterday in an appeal of last month’s ruling that determined the state law eliminating cash bail violates the Illinois Constitution. Raoul’s office argued that the state constitution doesn’t prevent a defendant from being released before trial without posting bail.
