CASE ENTRY

In re Humphrey

After stealing $5 and a bottle of cologne, 63-year-old San Francisco man is arrested. Bail is set at $350,000, which he cannot possibly pay. California Court of Appeals: Unless the government can show that he’s dangerous, they can’t keep him locked up merely for being too poor to afford bail.
