Advocates argue for maintaining bail reform despite criticism

Supporters of the bail reforms passed by New York in 2018 and effective on January 1 argued that they should be maintained despite critics. NY City Public Advocate Jumaane Williams and others spoke to the press in support of the new law which ends cash bail for non-violent crimes. They said bail jails innocent people for being poor while people like Harvey Weinstein were allowed out.
