Ohio Bail Reform Fiscal Impact Analysis

Source: ACLU of Ohio

Ohio’s bail system does not promote public safety— it simply allows some people to buy their release, regardless of what threat they may pose. It is also burdensome to taxpayers who end up footing the bill for long, unnecessary jail stays. Bail reform is needed to end wealth-based detention, bring Ohio’s courts into compliance with the United States Constitution, save money, and truly promote public safety.

A Comprehensive Plan for Criminal Justice Reform in Ohio (2016)

Source: OJPC and ACLU of Ohio

“The time for modest, incremental steps is over. We must challenge ourselves to imagine a fundamentally different justice system that is truly just, and not merely focused on punishment. We must usher in an era of being smart on crime, not just tough on crime, where accountability does not mean punishment for punishment’s sake. We can create forms of accountability that restore the law-breaker to being a productive member of society while also offering more robust healing and restoration to crime victims.” (2016)
