Effective Date: August 6, 2024

Bill Page / Signed Act / Last Fiscal Note

The bill requires the Judicial Department and the Department of Corrections (DOC) to report on probation and parole supervision fees that were assessed in the previous year during their SMART Act hearing.

The bill requires probation and parole officers to schedule meetings in good faith at a mutually agreeable time and allows for telephone or audio-visual meetings if consistent with court or Parole Board orders. This provision applies to both adult and juvenile probationers and parolees.

The bill allows the Parole Board to grant, deny, defer, suspend, revoke, or specify or modify conditions of parole that is in the best interest of the defendant and the public. Payment of supervision fees is not an allowable condition of parole, and parole may not be revoked for nonpayment of these fees.
