HB18-1081: State Court Administrator Reminder Call Center

Criminal Legal Reform | Issues
Bill Number: HB18-1081
Year: 2018
ACLU Position: Active Support
Sponsors: A. Benavidez


The bill requires the state court administrator to administer a
division that is charged with reminding criminal defendants to appear at
their scheduled hearings in the county courts and district courts of the
state. The objective of the division is to significantly reduce the number
of defendants who are committed to the custody of a county jail solely as
a result of their failure to appear in court.
