An Act To Amend Title 11 Of The Delaware Code Relating To Release Of Persons Accused Of Crimes.


In 2018, the General Assembly enacted House Bill No. 204 of the 149th General Assembly, Chapter 200, Volume 81 of the Laws of Delaware, ("HB 204"), with "the goal of modernizing the pretrial process, reducing reliance on monetary conditions, improving the efficiency and outcomes for the criminal justice system, and ensuring the safety of the community." HB 204 has resulted in the release of violent offenders into our communities, leading to more Delawareans being victimized. Therefore, this Act repeals HB 204, replacing HB 204's provisions with the law in effect before the enactment of HB 204 and bringing back greater safety for law abiding Delawareans and accountability for defendants. This Act also makes technical corrections to conform existing law, and previous law being returned to the Delaware Code, to the standards of the Delaware Legislative Drafting Manual.
