SF Man in center of state bail reform released from jail

May 09, 2018 | San Francisco Examiner
Kenneth Humphrey, 64, had remained in jail since May 2017 because he was unable to afford $350,000 bail set after he was arrested for allegedly robbing his 79-year-old neighbor and threatening to suffocate him with a pillowcase. But in January, a California appeals court found it was unconstitutional for judges to set bail without considering a person’s ability to pay and ruled that Humphrey was entitled to a new bail hearing.
