DA Krasner touts success with cash bail reduction in Philadelphia

Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner (D) discussed Tuesday the progress made in reducing people jailed and re-arrested in the year since his removal of cash bail requirements for certain charges.

Last year, Krasner announced a new policy that removed cash bail requirements for 25 low-level charges. He cited the detrimental effect the bail had on lower-income residents, especially people of color. Thursday will be the one-year anniversary of the enactment of the new course of action.
