Closer Look with Rose Scott


We continue to look at the issue of cash bonds, following a recent announcement from Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms that her administration is proposing legislation to eliminate cash bonds to secure release from the City of Atlanta Detention Center following an arrest for violation of city ordinances. On Monday, we spoke to the Executive Director of the American Bail Coalition. Today, we look more closely at local efforts with Jonathan Rapping, president and founder of Gideon’s Promise, a local organization which focuses on training public defenders who work with indigent clients.
