Rep. Miller’s Statement on No Cash Bail Ruling

State Rep. Chris Miller (IL-101) issued the following statement regarding the Illinois Supreme Court ruling in favor of No Cash Bail:

The pro-criminal SAFE-T Act is an irresponsible and dangerous piece of legislation that Illinois Democrats rammed through in the waning hours of the 101st General Assembly. One of the most harmful pieces of this law is the abolishment of cash bail, which allows hardened criminals to roam free in our communities, even after they have committed a crime and have been arrested,” said Miller. “This will put you, your family, and your community in danger, and I am very disappointed to see that the Illinois Supreme Court has ruled in favor of No Cash Bail.”
