SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WTVO) — Illinois Supreme Court justices will here arguments next month about whether the SAFE-T Act is constitutional, though the Illinois attorney general had a message for the court on Monday.

He urged the court in his final appeal brief to reject constitutional theories from prosecutors who are challenging the measure. Those state’s attorneys oppose the SAFE-T Act’s elimination of cash bail, saying that it would put dangerous criminals back on the street.

A Kankakee judge ruled last December that that portion is unconstitutional. That decision set up the court battle.

The attorney general’s office argued that lawmakers have the right to reform pre-trial court procedures.

The opposing state’s attorneys claimed that the voters should decide on any constitutional amendment.
