Statutes Amended In Order of Appearance
Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963. Requires the court to release a defendant charged with possession of less than 1 gram of heroin, possession of less than 1 gram of cocaine, or possession of less than 10 grams of cannabis on his or own recognizance if certain criteria are met. If the release on own recognizance criteria are not met and the court finds that monetary bail is not necessary to secure the appearance of the defendant, the court may require the defendant's monitoring under electronic surveillance as a condition of his or her release.
