Cash Bail

The bail process in Pennsylvania too often centers on an individual’s ability to pay rather than the individual’s risk to public safety. This leads to lengthy periods of imprisonment, sometimes years, putting employment, housing, child custody and other means of a stable and productive life at risk.

Rep. Summer Lee and Rep. Peter Schweyer will hold a hearing about cash bail in Pennsylvania on Wednesday, April 27 at 9:00 a.m. in 418 Minority Caucus in the Main Capitol in Harrisburg, PA.
