Illinois Supreme Court Hears Arguments On SAFE-T Act

The Illinois Supreme Court is deciding whether eliminating cash bail is constitutional in the state.  The state’s Supreme Court heard arguments yesterday from lawyers over the controversial provision of the landmark SAFE-T Act.  A Kankakee County judge ruled in December that removing cash bail is unconstitutional and Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul appealed to the state’s high court.  A decision from the justices could take several months.
