The New Jersey Bail Reform/Speedy Trial Law (L. 2014, c. 31) went into effect on January 1, 2017. This new law represents one of the most dramatic changes to our criminal justice system in many years. New Jersey has shifted from a system in which a defendant’s pretrial release is dependent upon his or her ability to post monetary bail, to one in which the defendant’s release is dependent upon his or her risk of failing to appear for court and the danger that he or she presents to the community. There is still time to join us for a free workshop to further explain the new law and discuss the implementations.
