New IL Law to Allow Cash Payments for Bail

If you need to bail someone out of jail in Illinois, you will soon be able to use cash.

A new law requires law enforcement officials to accept cash as an alternative to post bail.

Some departments already do this, but it became an issue in some districts.

A father tried to bail out his son, but the center's credit card machine had broken. This resulted in the son having to stay the entire weekend.

The law goes into effect January 1.
