The Act amends the Code section relating to offenses bailable only before a superior court judge. The Act also adds a new subsection which requires a presiding judicial officer to notify the superior court when an individual has been arrested for certain offenses and is being held without bail. Furthermore, the Act permits a person charged with certain offenses to petition the superior court for release on bail.
