Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey issued the following statement after today’s decision by the Judicial Council of California to set zero bail in response to the COVID-19 pandemic:

“I applaud the Chief Justice and the Judicial Council for adopting a statewide zero bail for people charged with most misdemeanors and low-level felonies,” District Attorney Lacey said. “In Los Angeles County, we implemented a zero-bail measure last week that allows us to further reduce the number of people in county jails and courthouses. I appreciate the collaboration among criminal justice leaders in Los Angeles County that has resulted in the rapid deployment of new and innovative approaches as we work to try to stop the spread of COVID-19 in our community.”
