New caselaw regarding bail withholding

Simpson/Martinez v. Miller (State)

February 9, 2017. This case considered the constitutionality of a bail provision under Arizona law. Arizona state Constitution and laws forbid bail for defendants accused of sexual conduct with a minor under age 15 under certain circumstances where it is likely the defendant committed the crime.

To withhold bail, an individualized determination of dangerousness must be made.
