• Illinois: First state to completely abolish cash bail (September 2023)
  • New Jersey: Effectively eliminated cash bail (2014), uses risk assessment system
  • New Mexico: Abolished cash bail (2016), favors risk-based pretrial release
  • District of Columbia: No cash bail, relies on risk assessment for pretrial release
  • Arizona, Alaska, Colorado, Kentucky, Maryland: Significantly reduced or limited cash bail use
  • New York, California, Indiana: Enacted reforms to curtail cash bail but haven’t eliminated it completely

Regarding Illinois (we do not provide bail bonds in this state)

Starting January 1st, 2023, the state of Illinois will completely eliminate the use of cash bail. This is due to the new Illinois criminal justice reform law known as SAFE-T Act (Public Act 101-0652).

With the new law in place, judges will no longer be able to order defendants to pay cash bail to get their pretrial releases—a significant shift that could have a widespread impact on the criminal justice system not only in Illinois but the country as a whole.

Side Note: Alternatives To Cash Bail In Nevada

Cash bail can be expensive, so it is certainly logical to look into other options.

The three main alternatives you have to cash bail are:

  1. Bail bonds (Best option): This is a great option since cash bail is expensive and bail bonds are a lot cheaper. Since Nevada has set the amount for bail bond premiums at 15 percent of the total bail amount, if the defendant’s bail is set at $20,000, they would need to pay $3,000 for their bail bond premium. While $3,000 is still a lot of money, many bail bond companies offer flexible and helpful payment plans.
  1. Getting released on OR (Bad option because of ankle monitors): When someone is released on their Own Recognizance, the court trusts them to honor the conditions of their release rather than demand a guarantee in the form of a bail bond. The problem is that, in Clark County, getting released on OR often means getting stuck with an ankle monitor to ensure that trust!
  1. Getting your bail amount reduced: While this is technically not a different option from cash bail, getting a bail reduction can help ease the burden for defendants who are planning on paying the full bail amount themselves.
