Proposition 25 would determine whether or not bail reform bill SB 10 will go into effect. SB 10, passed by the Legislature in 2018, eliminates bail and institutes new assement requirements for release from county jail before trial. Specifically, people jailed for most misdameanor crimes would be automatically released after 12 hours. This proposition requires that state trial courts assess people who are ineligible for automatic release regarding their risk of commiting a crime or not appearing in court. The measure would institute new requirements for detainment after arraignment.
