California DA Blows Whistle on Democrats: ‘70% of People Released on $0 Bail Policies Commit Additional Crimes’

A California district attorney has blown the whistle to expose the true impact of the Democrats’ soft-on-crime policies in the state.

Yolo County District Attorney Jeff Reisig has revealed that, in his county, more than 70 percent of criminal suspects went on to commit additional crimes after being released on $0 bail between 2020 and 2021.

Reisig has reached his limit with the Democrats’ failing zero bail policy, saying:

“When over 70% of the people released under mandated $0 bail policies go on to commit additional crime(s), including violent offenses such as robbery and murder, there is simply no rational public safety-related basis to continue such a practice post-pandemic, especially in light of the increasing violent crime rates across California.”

Yolo County issued a statement that said: “In April of 2020, in response to the COVID-19 global pandemic, the California Judicial Council imposed a statewide Emergency Bail Schedule, also known as $0 Bail.

“Shortly thereafter, the Yolo County District Attorney began tracking the individuals released on $0 bail and rearrested within Yolo County.

“Despite the Judicial Council rescinding its order in June of 2020, a number of California counties opted to keep the emergency bail schedule in effect, including Yolo.

“On June 1, 2021 the Yolo County Superior Court enacted a new bail schedule, effectively ending $0 bail.

“In June of this year, in an effort to provide some transparency on the $0 bail policies and associated data, and to better inform ongoing legislative discussions on the issue, the Yolo County District Attorney’s office conducted an analysis of $0 bail and rearrests.

“Recent criminal histories of the 595 individuals released on $0 bail in Yolo County were reviewed for any new arrests in the state of California.

“Of the 595 individuals released, 420 were rearrested (70.6%) and 123 (20% of the overall number or 29% of those rearrested) were arrested for a crime of violence.

“The crimes of violence included murder, attempted murder, kidnapping, robbery, carjacking, and domestic violence.

“One individual released on $0 bail in Yolo County was charged with murder in Sacramento County for a shooting that occurred in Old Sacramento in July of 2021,” the statement said.

According to the SacBee:

Out of 595 people who were released on $0 bail during that period, 420 were re-arrested, with 123 of them arrested for violent crimes, with charges ranging from murder and attempted murder to kidnapping, robbery, carjacking, and domestic violence. 

That included Marcus Trull, a 22-year-old who was arrested in connection with a shooting that left two dead in Old Sacramento in July 2021. 

He was released from jail in Yolo County but failed to appear to face felony charges of possessing a loaded gun and possessing a concealed gun in connection with an April 2020 case. 

Trull also failed to appear in Sacramento Superior Court for two charges in an October 2020 DUI case. Trull remains in custody in the Sacramento County Main Jail as he awaits a plea hearing Sept. 20 in the Old Sacramento case with co-defendant Cedric Salcedo, according to court records.
