At the January 11, 2023, Council Meeting, at 10:00 a.m., newly elected Councilwoman Maureen Porras will be bringing forth an item, through the City Attorney’s Office, that strongly opposes the proposed criminal court administrative order relating to bail and bond reform, which may result in granting dangerous criminal offenders a release on their own recognizance without attending a first appearance hearing before a judge without any monetary bond being posted.
Councilwoman Porras has directed the City Attorney to bring this important item before the Mayor and Council for their consideration, as it can negatively affect the safety and quality life of our residents, businesses, and visitors. Other municipalities like Miami Beach have also taken a stand opposing this measure in order to protect the community.
