Dan's Bail Bonds Supports Humanity, Backs a No Vote On Prop 25

"It's a complicated situation, but we don't want to leave something as important as arresting someone completely to the discretion of a software algorithm," Nesser said. "We certainly want to hold people accountable for the crimes they commit but we must acknowledge the human element. The system is broken, but it really needs to be modified and refined, not eradicated."
Prior to the signing of Senate Bill 10 on August 28, 2018 by then Governor Jerry Brown, California used a cash bail system to release criminal suspects awaiting trial to ensure that they return for their court dates.
SB10 replaced the cash bail system with risk assessment based on information technology algorithms to determine whether a detained suspect should be granted pre-trial release.
The California Peace Officers Association, three chapters of the ACLU, and the California Conference of the NAACP, among others, oppose Prop 25.
"The human psyche and criminal behavior are challenging issues but relying on a Silicon Valley algorithm can interfere with justice," Nesser said. "It's important that we adjust and modify bail rates, but eliminating bail is not the answer. Justice should be mitigated in a completely different way."
