Kojo speaks with Arlington Board Chair Katie Cristol about the Amazon HQ2 effect and D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine about his probe into the local Catholic Church and his office's legal challenges against the Trump administration.
Guest Host: Jennifer Golbeck
Since the fall, Maryland judges have followed a new rules regarding bail: They must consider a defendant’s ability to pay when setting bail and hand down the least harsh conditions when there is no flight risk. The change elicited a tense legislative battle. While the bail bond industry pushed Maryland’s General Assembly to overturn the court’s ruling and argued defendants would not return to court for trial, supporters of the new rules called Maryland’s old bail system unconstitutional and discriminatory. After more than half a year, are the new bail rules having the intended effect?
