Ethan Scrivner works as a public defender and has seen first hand how disruptive the monetary bail system can be in the lives of his clients. Additionally, he is aware that the current system frequently causes those with no ability to pay bail to plead guilty in criminal matters simply to get out of jail, a gross denial of due process based solely on economic status. Ethan seeks to create a world where one's ability to pay bail does not lead to pre-trial detention.
