Description

Bail in subsequent proceeding arising out of initial arrest. Provides that any person who was previously admitted to bail shall be granted bail and have the terms of bond or recognizance fixed in the amount or manner consistent with the prior admission to bail, but if the court having jurisdiction of the subsequent proceeding believes bail is inappropriate, or the amount of bond or security inadequate or excessive, it may deny bail, or change the amount of such bond or security, require new and additional sureties, or set other terms of bail as are appropriate to the case. Under current law, any person who was previously admitted to bail is not required to be admitted to bail in any subsequent proceeding arising out of the initial arrest unless the court having jurisdiction of such subsequent proceeding deems the initial amount of bond or security taken inadequate. This bill is a recommendation of the Virginia Criminal Justice Conference. Read the Bill »
