Bail Bond

The Colorado House unanimously passed a bipartisan bill on Friday that would eliminate cash bail for minor offenses.

Those minor offenses include having an open container, trespassing and shoplifting less than $50 worth of goods.

Exceptions include "a traffic offense involving death or bodily injury, eluding a police officer, circumventing an interlock device, or a municipal offense with substantially similar elements to a state misdemeanor offense," the bill reads.
