The Ohio Supreme Court approved rule changes requiring that:

  • Counties with more than one municipal or county court adopt a uniform bail schedule.

The changes take effect July 1 and were proposed by the group charged with implementing the 2019 recommendations of the Ohio Task Force to Examine the Ohio Bail System.
