"The Bail Trap" Part 2

For anyone interested in issues including and beyond bail at the Harris County Jail, The Atlantic has published a new piece Harris County Jails Prove Impervious to Reform. This is, in my opinion, spot on and worth reading. A round-up of related Houston Chronicle articles fromt the past month is posted here. None of this is particularly surprising to those of us who've represented people accused of crimes in Harris County for a number of years. Sadly, they are only now getting as much attention as they deserve. Part of that is because there has been more attention on these issues in 2015 nationwide than in the past.

Some proposed solutions from the Texas Criminal Justice Coalition were published earlier this year in A Blueprint for Criminal Justice Policy Solutions in Harris County..

Update: This situation is improving due to the individual and combined efforts of many locals including the DA, judges, Sheriff and commissioners, who are to be commended.
