Pre-Trial

 

 
Pretrial Services/Bond Supervision
 
  • The Pretrial Supervision Program is intended to alleviate overcrowding in the Butler County Prison by allowing qualified defendants to remain free on bail pending resolution of charges. The aim of the program is to ensure public safety and a defendant's appearance and compliance with the conditions of his or her bail bond.
  • When the Court places a defendant on Pretrial supervision, the Pretrial Release Officer will ensure the defendant complies with conditions of bond, including:
    • Gathering of demographic information.
    • Referral to appropriate services, such as drug and alcohol, mental health or batterers treatment.
    • Monitoring of defendant's compliance with treatment.
    • Report as directed to the Pretrial Release Officer. If the defendant complies with conditions of his/her Pretrial release, the Pretrial Release Officer may reduce the reporting requirement.
    • Requirement that defendant follow General Rules of Pretrial Supervision, in addition to special conditions of bond ordered by the Court.
