Bill Summary

The bill requires the state court administrator to administer a court reminder program (program) to remind criminal defendants to appear at their scheduled hearings in district courts, county courts, and municipal courts that use the judicial department's case management system. The objective of the program is to significantly reduce the number of defendants who are committed to the custody of a county jail solely as a result of their failure to appear in court.
