Too Long; Didn't Read

Court hearings are going virtual in response to COVID-19. Studies show they can lead to harsher outcomes for defendants. Some jurisdictions have held some types of hearings over video for years. Video hearings have been most commonly used for pretrial initial appearances (also called bail hearings), or bond hearings.
