Senate Bill 50
Changes to the Priority List for Court Fees and Fines
Effective date: July 1, 2012
This legislation permits a criminal jury trial, in some counties, to be held outside the courthouse only if the alternate facility is owned or leased by the governing authority of the county, and no longer requires the consent of the accused.
This bill also amends the priority list for distribution of fines and fees collected in superior court for use if the full amount is not collected.
