Provisions

  • Restricting the use of incarceration for technical violations

    Incarceration would be eliminated as a sanction for most technical violations. Certain technical violations could still result in jail time, but it would be capped at a maximum of 30 days.

  • Bolstering due process

    Persons under community supervision shall be afforded a recognizance hearing in a local criminal court before they are detained, pending adjudication of an alleged violation of their conditions of release, whether a technical violation or a new criminal charge is alleged.

  • Providing speedy hearings

    Persons under community supervision shall be afforded a speedy adjudicatory hearing upon an alleged violation of their conditions of release.

  • Providing earned time credits

    People under community supervision would be eligible to earn a 30-day “earned time credits” reduction in their community supervision period for every 30-day period in which they do not violate a condition of supervision.
