NorCal DAs Point To Rise In Crime After Zero Cash Bail Implementation

California prosecutors are speaking out against a zero-cash bail policy for minor offenses that they say has led to a rise in crime from repeat offenders.

Yolo County assistant chief deputy district attorney Melinda Aiello says more than 740 new crimes have been committed since zero-cash bail was implemented. California's Judicial Council voted to end the policy in June 2020, but some counties have continued to use it to reduce jail populations amid the pandemic.
