Bail Reform:

Any part of our justice system that treats the rich and the poor differently is broken. With this in mind, Joe enacted a “Presumption of Release” policy – meaning that in instances of low level, non-violent offenses, Bexar County prosecutors will recommend release from jail without cash bail at the time of magistration. Joe believes that our limited jail space should be effectively used to keep dangerous criminals off the streets, not to jail those who are simply too poor to post bail.
