Title: The Constitutionality of Pretrial Detention Without Bail in New Mexico
Author: Norwood, J. Michael; Novins, Larry
Abstract: The New Mexico constitutional amendment invites serious and important questions about how, if at all, the United States Constitution limits the power of the states to deny bail to persons accused of crimes. These questions include: (1) what, if any, limits on the denial of bail are imposed by the eighth amendment's excessive bail clause; and (2) what, if any, limits on the denial of bail are imposed by the due process and equal protection provisions of the fourteenth amendment. This article will address those questions.
