HB 73SignedMinor-BrownThis Act reflects a recommendation of the 2019 Comprehensive Reentry Plan and Progress Report which allows the Department of Corrections, Probation and Parole officers the flexibility to recommend to a court house arrest (Level IV home confinement) for any probation violator in appropriate circumstances. Under current law, Probation and Parole may not recommend house arrest (Level IV home confinement) for a person who violates probation if the person was initially convicted of a “violent crime.” Accordingly, recommendations pertaining to probation violations for persons convicted of a “violent crime” are limited to Levels 1-3 (a lower level of supervision) or Level V (incarceration) which may be excessive and costly. The Act also makes non-substantive changes to existing law to make it conform to the Legislative Drafting Manual.AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 11 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO PROBATION AND PAROLE RECOMMENDATONS FOR HOUSE ARREST.
