PRETRIAL DEFENDANT SUPERVISION
Pretrial Supervision Officers monitor and report to the court on individuals released on qualifying bonds. Supervision services include not only the tracking of defendants’ court dates and monitoring the defendants for compliance with the court’s orders relative to release, but also referral to substance abuse intervention services, community based mental health agencies, urinalysis testing, prohibitions against defendant contact with the victims of offenses, etc.
The Pretrial Defendant Supervision section provides the requisite screening, recommending and supervising of defendants in the program. The program allows persons charged with certain felony offenses the opportunity to avoid conviction on the felony charge, upon satisfaction of certain special conditions. Among other requirements, eligible defendants are required to pay a program participation fee, must not have a significant prior criminal history, must not be drug or alcohol dependent, must fully restitute the victim of the offense and perform a specified number of hours of service to the community at large.
Supervising Pretrial Officers are assigned to investigate and advise the Court when persons previously charged with or convicted of crimes file motions for sealing of the records of arrest or conviction.
Presentence Investigation Reports are mandated by statute for all convicted felons, prior to sentencing. Investigative Probation Officers are assigned court referred cases, and perform an exhaustive background investigation for use by the Court at sentencing.
