A Bail related case was argued before the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals on December 7, 2022. The Indiana State Legislature passed a bill that placed restrictions on a charitable bail funds' ability to post bonds for defendants charged with crime of violence or charged with a felony and have a prior conviction for a crime of violence. The bill passed the Indiana Legislature and was scheduled to go into effect July 1, 2022. The Bail Project filed suit in federal court attempting to keep the new law from going into effect. On this episode of the Bail Post, find out the arguments raised by the Bail Project against the statute. Also, listen to a summary of the oral argument before the court of appeals.
