Out-of-state special interests promoting Proposition 102 want even more money from Coloradoans. Proposition 102 will lead to higher jail populations, which means more tax dollars to house defendants, charged but not yet convicted who would be required to buy their way from jail. Statements by Proposition 102 supporters are untrue — misleading Colorado voters.
The bail industry only cares that the defendant shows up for court so they don’t have to pony up the promised bail, not what risks may be posed to the community. Proposition 102 actually allows a defendant accused of a violent crime to be released on a non-monetary bond — as long as they don’t have any supervision by a professional pretrial program!
