Description

Admission to bail; rebuttable presumptions. Creates a rebuttable presumption against releasing a person on his own recognizance or an unsecured bond in certain circumstances detailed in the bill. The bill provides that such presumption may be rebutted if the judicial officer finds, by clear and convincing evidence, that such person is not a flight risk and his liberty will not constitute an unreasonable danger to himself, family or household members, or the public. The bill also provides for an appeal, upon notice by the Commonwealth, of a district court's decision to release a person on his own recognizance or an unsecured bond over the presumption.
