Chief Shortnacy discusses zero bail, inmate release

By
Chief Reuben Shortnacy
Corcoran Police Department
Effective at 5 p.m. Monday April 13, 2020 Kings County Superior Court, along with all other California Superior Courts, implemented an emergency bail schedule adopted by the California Judicial Council on April 6th as part of its emergency rules.
Under Emergency Rule 4, bail for all misdemeanor and many felony offenses will be set at zero dollars.  Exemptions to the new schedule include violent crimes such as murder and rape.  However, the new rules permit zero bail for crimes such as child abuse, auto theft, elder abuse, burglary and failing to register as a sex offender.  Keep in mind that this is not a complete list of those crimes now eligible under this new rule.  In addition to the crimes that I have already mentioned, those who are arrested for crimes such as drug trafficking, theft and fraud will be embolden to commit the same crimes because of the zero bail that is mandated.
