AN ACT TO ENSURE THAT ALL MAGISTRATES RECEIVE THE EDUCATION NECESSARY TO PERFORM THE DUTY OF A MAGISTRATE.
Senate amendment makes the following changes to the 4th edition. Deletes the proposed changes to GS 15A-534 that would have removed the mandates that (1) judicial officials require a defendant to execute a secured appearance bond when imposing house arrest with electronic monitoring as a condition of pretrial release and (2) a judicial official require a defendant who has failed to appear on one or more prior occasions to answer the charge(s) to which pretrial conditions apply to execute a secured appearance bond in an amount at least double the amount of the most recent previous secured or unsecured bond, or $1,000 if no bond has been required of the charges, instead requiring that the judicial official impose conditions of pretrial release provided by the statute, which includes imposing restrictions on travel, associations, conduct, or place of abode of the defendant. Makes conforming changes to the act's long title.
