Louisville residents protest, march to end cash bail A study by the Kentucky Center for Economic Policy released on Tuesday found bail practices to be “wildly inconsistent” by county in the commonwealth.  For example, the share of defendants released before trial last year without having to post cash bail ranged from a low of 5% in McCracken County to a high of 68% in Martin County. Additionally, the study found that defendants' abilities to pay bail also varied greatly by county. When judges required cash bail, only 17% of defendants in Wolfe County could afford to pay it versus 99% in Hopkins County.
