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.
