Manage episode 347389788 series 3403376
This episode is all about Illinois HB3653, known as the Safe-T Act. It stands for ‘Safety, Accountability, Fairness, and Equity-Today’ and we discuss, in depth, how this act really does not do much to keep the citizens of Illinois very safe, how it creates problems for our State's Attorneys, and the use of recognizance bonds for felonies.
The following 12 offenses, as of January 1, 2023, will be eligible for recognizance bonds:
- second-degree murder
- drug-induced homicide
- aggravated battery
- aggravated driving under the influence
- fleeing and eluding
- drug offenses, and
- threatening a public official
I would love to say that this was a parody episode... but it truly is not.
