Democratic Attorney General Nominee Letitia “Tish” James Outlines Plan to Eliminate Cash Bail in New York State

NEW YORK -- Democratic Attorney General nominee Letitia “Tish” James today released her plan to eliminate cash bail in New York State.

Highlights of her plan include introducing program legislation to end cash bail and replace it with a more just system that does not punish poverty. Until that legislation is passed, Tish will use the powers of the Attorney General’s office -- from enforcing consumer protections to providing technical support through the Charities Bureau to non-profits who seek to provide bail without fees -- to lessen the impact of the current, unjust system.
