State Issue 1: The proposed amendment would require courts to consider factors when setting the amount of bail. Those factors include public safety, the seriousness of the crime, the person’s criminal record and the likelihood a person will return to court. It would also remove the requirement that the procedures for establishing the amount and conditions of bail be determined by the Supreme Court of Ohio. Learn more about this issue here.
