Hobie Crystle

Hobie Crystle is running for Lancaster County District Attorney to make our justice system fair for everyone. He is going to stop wasting taxpayer money on practices that just don’t work. He is committed to helping people suffering from addiction get treatment, rather than throwing them in jail. Hobie will end the broken cash bail system, which splits families apart and costs people their jobs and their housing.

Meet Hobie in Columbia at a House Party this Saturday,  July 20 at 5 p.m. at 500 Chestnut Street.

Hobie Crystle is running for Lancaster County District Attorney because he knows it’s time for the criminal justice system to start serving us the way it was intended to– and to stop wasting taxpayer money on solutions that don’t work. We have a unique chance through Hobie to change the culture of the District Attorney’s office, creating a criminal justice system that is fair, empathetic to our community’s needs, and that works for everyone.

The cash bail system has created two criminal justice systems: one for the haves, and another for the have-nots.​ When people are saddled with cash bail they cannot pay, they lose their job, their apartment, their car— and maybe their relationships and their kids. In the end, the taxpayer pays because the families left behind go on welfare or into public housing, and the kids go into foster care. As District Attorney, Hobie will eliminate cash bail for small offenses, where the crime wouldn’t require a jail sentence even if convicted.
