CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2017–2018 REGULAR SESSION

Senate Bill No. 971


Introduced by Senator Nguyen

January 31, 2018


An act to amend Section 853.85 of the Penal Code, relating to crimes.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 971, as introduced, Nguyen. Criminal procedure: misdemeanors.
Existing law governs criminal proceedings when a person is arrested for an offense declared to be an infraction or a misdemeanor, including the circumstances under which the person may be brought before a magistrate or the juvenile court, or released upon his or her written promise to appear, as specified. Existing law states that these provisions do not apply when a person is arrested for an offense declared to be a felony.
This bill would make technical, nonsubstantive changes to the latter provision.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 853.85 of the Penal Code is amended to read:

853.85.
 This chapter shall does not apply in any case where in which a person is arrested for an offense declared to be a felony.
