From notification to bounty hunters
from Ellsworth County Independent-Reporter
In a procedural flurry, the Senate Corrections and Juvenile Justice committee passed two bills and heard a third. The committee unanimously passed Senate Bills 12 and 13 and heard testimony on Senate Bill 90. When a convict is released from confinement by the Department of Corrections, Senate Bill 13 would allow the department to notify the victim of the release. Also, after four amendments the committee passed Senate Bill 12, which would increase sentences for battery and aggravated battery against judges, attorneys and court services officers.
