Gregory Gillett of Gillett Green, LLP spoke to several hundred community members and business people at Good Morning SLO, a Chamber of Commerce event. Mr. Gillett spoke on the ramifications of SB 10 – Bail Reform. Mr. Gillett highlighted the disparate impact that the current bill reform has on the poor and the outlook after the Money Bail Reform Act is enacted in 2019.
California is the first state to end the cash bail system, and proponents state that this move will help encourage more equal treatment of rich and poor. Mr. Gillett was happy to further elaborate on this viewpoint.
