Bail-Bond Alternative at issue with Prop. 102
In ten Colorado, counties, criminal defendants have an option to the traditional bail bont system, dubbed "pretrial services." A special clerk reviews cases and certain of the accused are offered their freedom 'til trial - with certain conditions. They won't have to post bail, but they may be required to check in with the court on a regular basis or undergo drug or alcohol monitoring. But the system is called into question with Proposition 102, on the statewide ballot this November. Proponents say pretiral services put dangerous criminals out on the street with little guarentee they'll show up to court. Supporters of the current system - thus opposed - includestate Attorney General John Suthers. There's a lot on the ballot this fall - so be sure to read up on this tricky issue.
