Representative Henderson on Jail Bond Changes

(Jefferson City) Saying those accused of a crime should be treated fairly according to the law and not according to their pocketbook, Missouri Supreme Court Chief Justice Zel Fischer is changing jail bond requirements.

The new rules will go into effect July 1st with all courts to consider how to minimize charges or waive them altogether before adding any costs.
