Description

Resetting bail, bond, and recognizance determinations; jurisdiction. Provides that any motion to alter the terms and conditions of bail where the initial bail decision is made by a judge or clerk of a district court or by a magistrate on any charge originally pending in that district court shall be filed in that district court unless (i) a bail decision is on appeal, (ii) such charge has been transferred to a circuit court, or (iii) such charge has been certified by a district court. The bill also provides that a bail decision of a higher court from an appeal of a lower court's bail decision shall be remanded to the lower court in which the case is pending for enforcement and modification of bail. As introduced, this bill was a recommendation of the Virginia Criminal Justice Conference. Read the Bill »
