Bill Summary

Current law requires an individual who is in jail to be brought before a judge for a bond hearing within 48 hours of arriving at the jail. The bill clarifies the circumstances when the 48-hour requirement does not apply when the individual is unable to attend court. The bill also clarifies that the 48-hour requirement applies regardless of whether:

  • The individual is held in custody in a jurisdiction other than the one that issues the arrest warrant; or
  • Money bond was previously set ex parte.
    (Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
