It’s amazing that Texas has such a discrepancy in the setting of bail amounts, just between neighboring cities.
So when does bail reform come to DFW? It’s already a thing in Harris County—only because a federal judge mandated it, but it’s started. Albeit, Harris county was probably a tad bit harsher than Dallas County but not unlike many of the surrounding counties in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. How is it that one can receive a $500 bond in Dallas County for possession of marijuana under 4 oz. (a class b misdemeanor) and the bond be $3,000 in Navarro County?
