Current law prohibits a court from releasing a person on an
unsecured personal recognizance bond without consent of the district
attorney or unless the court imposes certain additional individualized
conditions of release if the person is presently free on another bond of any
kind in another criminal action involving a felony or a class 1
misdemeanor, has a record of conviction of a class 1 misdemeanor within

2 years or a felony within 5 years, has willfully failed to appear on bond
in any case involving a felony or a class 1 misdemeanor charge in the
preceding 5 years (collectively, persons accused of repeat or violent
offenses). The bill removes the provisions regarding district attorney
consent and additional conditions of release and prohibits a court from
releasing a person accused of repeat or violent offenses on any unsecured
personal recognizance bond. The bill adds to persons accused of repeat
or violent offenses a person who is accused of committing a crime of
violence and the court finds probable cause to believe that the person has
committed the offense.
Existing law requires any monetary condition of pre-trial release
to be reasonable. The bill clarifies that for a person accused of repeat or
violent offenses, a reasonable monetary condition is at least $7,500.
