Summary as passed Senate: (all summaries)
Deferral and dismissal; community-based corrections program. Expands the section allowing a misdemeanor charge to be discharged and dismissed if the defendant fulfills the terms and conditions of his probation even though the facts justify a finding of guilt. The bill allows discharge and dismissal for any misdemeanor (except DUI) whereas current law includes certain property crimes only. The bill also allows a judge to order successful completion of a community-based corrections program as a term or condition of probation for discharge and dismissal. Under current law a person must be convicted before being sentenced to a community-based corrections program.
