So I propose a simultaneous countervailing incentive in the form of a cash bounty to the judge for each defendant he releases.Read more at location 1523
Note: TAGLIA Edit
Whether judges would release more or fewer defendants than they do today would depend on the size of the cash bounty, which could be adjusted to reflect the wishes of the legislature.Read more at location 1525
