A Kankakee County, Ill., judge has ruled that portions of the Illinois SAFE-T Act are unconstitutional, including bail reform and pre-trial release provisions. The SAFE-T Act was scheduled to go into effect on Jan. 1. Circuit Judge Thomas Cunnington held that the SAFE-T Act violated the Separation of Powers Clause, the Victim Rights Act, and unconstitutionally amended Article I, Section 9 of the state’s constitution, which codified cash bail in the state.
