SB 190 – Getting rid of fines for juvenile offenders

This bill has already passed through the Senate Public Safety committee and had its hearing in Appropriations committee today. I’m writing this on the go, but I would be willing to guess it will make it to a floor vote and you’ll be wanting to call your Senator soon and Assemblymember down the line.

The Basics

  • This bill would get rid of some administrative fees for certain criminal justice programs forminors under the age of 21.
  • These fees include adminstrative fees for house arrest, drug testing as a condition of probation, damages to house arrest monitors, and other administrative costs that are typically passed onto the offender or their guardians.
