The new zero-bail policy is taking effect in Los Angeles County. It allows for some criminal suspects, who are accused of non-violent or non-serious crimes, to be cited and released when they would have originally been held on bond.
The Los Angeles County Superior Count made the decision to implement the policy in July arguing that cash bail discriminated against minorities and the poor. Dozens of cities are looking to over turn the policy including Arcadia Glendora, Santa Fe Springs. Palmdale and more.
