Are they given ankle bracelets? So the person in the grocery store behind you, might have been released after shooting someone.

Thanks liberals! Flooding the streets with criminals sounds like a great and safe idea!

JERSEY CITY -- A 23-year-old city man accused of shooting another man has been released from the Hudson County jail in Kearny under conditions set by the state's new bail reform law.

Felix A. Torres of Jewett Avenue appeared today in Central Judicial Processing via video link from the jail on charges of aggravated assault and weapons offenses dating from Jan. 6 in the area of Kensington and West Side avenues.

Hudson County Assistant Prosecutor William Specht told CJP Judge Margaret Marley during the hearing that it isn't clear if Torres targeted anyone in the shooting or if the victim happened to be in the direction of the gunfire.

The whole for profit bail system is a tad concerning.

Bail reform is killing our business, bail bondsmen say

JERSEY CITY -- New Jersey bail bondsmen may be looking for some bailing out of their own. 

A pair of Hudson County bondsmen and one from Bergen County told The Jersey Journal the bail reforms that took effect on Jan. 1 have decimated their businesses, leaving them with previously sold bonds to service but no money coming in.

"So far we have zero business," Lou Turdo, of Big Lou's Bail Bonds on Newark Avenue in Jersey City said of the impact of the Speedy Trial and Bail Reform Act, which assumes virtually no defendants will have monetary bails.

(This is a tad concerning...)

I don't have the means and the income to catch these guys or monitor them anymore," Turdo said. "Once they get the word on the street, I think people will stop showing up in court... It's really scary the types of defendants that are being released on their own recognizance."

Shaw added: "There's no way we can keep an office and pay our employees to come in if there's no business."

Bail reform assuming nearly all defendants be released takes effect

The state Bail Reform and Speed Trial Act came into effect in Hudson County's Central Judicial Processing court where bail bonds workers watched as not one monetary bail was set under the new rules, which assume most defendants will be released pending prosecution.

All defendants facing criminal charges in Hudson County make their first court appearance in CJP which was held yesterday on the New Year's holiday because the new Bail Reform law requires defendants make their first court appearance within 48 hours of their arrest.

I think the "no bail" mandate will certainly save a lot of money by reducing the inmate population in Kearny, but what will it do for the incentive not to commit a crime? If I'm a shoplifter, for instance, don't you think I'll be emboldened to shoplift more because I know my odds are pretty high I won't go to jail, I'll just be released with a notice to appear?

I know there's a huge backlog already with warrants, doesn't this new mandate just increase the potential growth of the backlog?

I wonder what stats will look like on this program this time next year.

In order to accomplish these goals more money must be spent. How much is the question?
