Akron, Ala. – Across the United States, several states are looking into reforming their current bail schedules and re-evaluating whether or not the current system upholds the constitutional rights of Americans. The Hale County bail bond agents of Alabama Bail Bonds have had a close eye on how these rulings could soon affect the residents of their own communities in the state of Alabama.

The reform comes from over four years of numerous debates within the United States Supreme Court with former U.S. Attorney General, Eric Holder, leading the charge. The assertion being made is that the current monetary bail system that creates a “wealth-based” discriminatory system where only the rich can afford to be bailed out of jail should the need arise. Proponents of this narrative are asserting a complete removal of the cash bond system which their counterparts are pointing out that this step could potentially release hundreds of offenders back on the streets and put many small business owners at risk of shutting down.

As a result of these claims, Plaintiffs lawyers have been suing small jurisdictions across the U.S. Recently a city in Georgia who has come under fire decided to take the case all the way up to the Supreme Court where it was ultimately upheld the decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit and ruled cash bonds constitutional.

“It is a great day, but it has been a long, expensive road to get here,” said Executive Director of the American Bail Coalition, Jeff Clayton. “We knew from the beginning these cases were about due process more than excessive bail, and we were proven correct today.”

Fellow advocates against the removal of the monetary bail bond in Akron, AL system, Alabama Bail Bonds, is involved in a similar lawsuit that is also expected to be heard by the Eleventh Circuit involving a similar case out of Randolph, Alabama.

“We are confident the Eleventh Circuit will rule to uphold monetary bail as constitutional,” states Jennifer Smith, Agent of Alabama Bail Bonds.
