Fair Cash Bail in Cook County
CHICAGO (July 17, 2017) – Chief Justice of Cook County, Timothy C. Evans, ordered that defendants who pose no danger to the public will be released from custody pending trial with bail amounts to be set at an amount they can afford.
“Defendants should not be sitting in jail awaiting trial simply because they lack the financial resources to secure their release. If they are not deemed a danger to any person or the public, my order states that they will receive a bail they can afford,” Chief Judge Evans said.
