More States Attorneys Sue Pritzker Over SAFE-T Act No-Bail Provision (Springfield, IL) – Last Friday Kendall County States Attorney Eric Weis joined with Kendall County Sheriff Dwight Baird as the latest countywide law enforcement official to sue the Pritzker administration to stop the “horrendous unintended consequences” of the UN-SAFE-T Act.

“It will have huge impacts and I just don’t think people realize what’s really coming,” Weis said. “It’s not a Republican or Democrat thing. The two state’s attorneys who filed first are Democrats, so I’m telling you this is not politics. It is something that truly needs to be addressed, and if it’s not addressed before Jan. 1, it will be almost impossible to fix.”

The [un]SAFE-T Act’s no-cash-bail provision goes into effect across Illinois on January 1st. With crime already sky-high in major cities across the state, the release of potentially violent criminals does not bode well for the safety of Illinois residents.

The State of New York abolished cash bail for most nonviolent offenses in 2020.

Since then, New York City has seen a massive spike in crime, while 20.1% of “felony arraignments” are rearrested, with 16.1% failing to appear at arraignment. This doesn’t bode well for Chicago which has already seen a 38% spike in crime since this time last year.

“Public safety is on the ballot this November. This election is about more than the usual policy differences; it’s about what kind of state we want to be on January 1st when the Democrats’ no-cash-bail provision is slated to go into effect,” said Illinois Republican Party Chairman Don Tracy. “Beyond merely being ‘soft-on-crime’, Illinois Democrats are fast becoming the party of ‘crime’. 15 Democratic legislators and Chicago Alderman have been indicted, convicted, or plead guilty to criminal misconduct since Pritzker became governor. Some of these same legislators helped pass the [un]-SAFE-T act in the dead of night. We must send corrupt Democrats packing and repeal the Democrat’s no-cash bail law on November 8th, before it’s too late.”

States Attorney Weis and Sheriff Baird join McHenry County States Attorney Patrick Kenneally, and Democrat States Attorney James Glasgow of Will, and Democrat States Attorney Jim Rowe of Kankakee in challenging the SAFE-T Act in court.
