SB 255 amends existing provisions requiring notice to the superior court when a person is being held in a detention facility and is charged with an offense bailable only before a superior court judge. HB 466 creates a new section permitting the release of a person who has been found guilty of certain crimes, pending his reporting to a correction facility to serve his sentence. This release may be conditioned upon either the convicted person's own recognizance or the posting of bond to ensure his return at the time for the sentence to commence.
