Alignment of Petty Property Crime Threshold

Concerning aligning the threshold for a comparable municipal offense to a state-level petty property crime for purposes of prohibiting a monetary condition of release.
Session:
2024 Regular Session
Subject:
Crimes, Corrections, & Enforcement
Bill Summary

Under current law, if a defendant is charged with a traffic offense, a petty offense, or a comparable municipal offense, a court shall not impose a monetary condition of release. Specifically, the provision applies to a comparable municipal offense that is a property crime and reflects a value of less than $50. The act removes the monetary threshold and instead states that the court cannot impose a monetary condition of release for a comparable municipal offense that would be a petty offense property crime under state law.
