2011 bail/pretrial release legislation week

August 15th, 2011 by Bill Raftery Leave a reply »

Though not normally tracked by Gavel to Gavel, I’ve had numerous readers request information on bail or pretrial release. Because much of the legislation does impact the courts’ and their ability to direct defendants, and because of the aforementioned reader interest, I am dedicating this week to bail/pretrial release legislation, starting today.

Have an idea for a court-related topic you’d like to see tracked? Just send an email!

In order to make this readable and usable, instead of using the 4 main US Census regions, I am dividing the Southern region into two along Census division lines.

Monday (Northeast): Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont
Tuesday (South Atlantic): Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia
Wednesday (East South Central & West South Central): Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas
Thursday (Midwest): Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, Wisconsin
Friday (West): Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Wyoming
