Extreme Sentencing: Bail Reform

Mar 03, 2020 on Syndicated at 3:00 PM


Dr. Phil investigates a controversial new law known as "bail reform," where judges will no longer have the power to set bail for a long list of misdemeanors and nonviolent felonies. Dr. Phil meets two esteemed judges, Rosemarie Aquilina and Darrell J... (more)ordan, who are in strong opposition to each other on this issue. Then, hear from Akeem Browder, whose brother Kalief took his own life after spending three years in a violent jail for a crime he did not commit because he could not afford bail, and a woman whose nephew died in a car accident caused by a drunk driver who was released from jail weeks after his arrest. Plus, Duane Chapman, aka “Dog The Bounty Hunter,” who strongly opposes the new law claiming it favors criminals over the safety of the general public, will join the conversation. How will bail reform affect the average citizen?
