Resource: St. Louis, MO: Bail

By: Civil Rights Corps

March 30, 2020

In January 2019, Civil Rights Corps joined a lawsuit challenging the unconstitutional money bail system in St. Louis, Missouri. This lawsuit was filed in partnership with ArchCity Defenders, the Advancement Project, and the Georgetown Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection (ICAP). Our clients and named plaintiffs were all detained in the Workhouse, a local jail in St. Louis notorious for abusive treatment by guards and inadequate medical care.
