Current law requires an individual who is in jail to be brought
before a judge for a bond hearing within 48 hours of arriving at the jail.
The bill clarifies the circumstances when the 48-hour requirement does
not apply when the individual is unable to attend court. The bill also
clarifies that the 48-hour requirement applies regardless of whether:
  • The individual is held in custody in a jurisdiction other than
the one that issues the arrest warrant; or
  • Money bond was previously set ex parte.
