Illinois (WFIE) - In Illinois, cash bail was set to be eliminated on January 1.

Now that’s been delayed.

This includes White County plus 64 other counties.

Cash bail will remain in place following a judge’s ruling that provisions in the “SAFE-T act” are unconstitutional.

They were part of a class-action lawsuit in opposition of the legislation pushed by Democrats who control the Illinois General Assembly.
