On August 3, the D.C. Circuit remanded a no-bail ruling, in order for the trial court to issue sufficient written findings of fact and statement of reasons for denying bail. U.S. v. Nwokoro, ___ F.3d ___ (D.C. Cir., Aug. 3, 2011).
Sadly, too many presumed-innocent people are caged with no-bail orders while awaiting federal trials, particularly with the Bail Reform Act’s (some misnomer) no-bail presumption for various alleged crimes.
