Utah’s Judicial Retention Act of 1996 was amended in 1997 and reauthorized in 2018.
But that reauthorization expired in January 2019, and it has not been renewed.
Utah has a new law on the books that mandates a five-year waiting period before any person convicted of a crime can be released from jail, a six-year wait before an offender may apply for parole, and a one-year requirement before any offender can be freed from probation.
The law has been on the book since it was passed in 1995, but there are some exceptions.
The law allows people to remain in jail for up to five years after their initial release if they are serving time for a drug-related crime, an assault or burglary, or a serious violation of parole.
The Utah Legislature is set to take up the state’s parole, probation, and court-supervised release laws this year.
But lawmakers have not taken up any new measures to reinstate the statute.
The state’s judicial review and retrial authority, which was enacted in 1997, requires a five judge panel to determine whether a person convicted for a crime committed before Jan. 1, 1996, was released from the state prison system or placed on probation.
A state judge is not authorized to release someone from jail until a judge determines that the person has not violated any condition of their release, such as drug or alcohol addiction.
That means the person is still in jail and awaiting trial.
The current law requires that judges determine if the person was released after a hearing and a hearing.
If a judge denies the person’s request for release, the person remains in jail until the hearing and the person makes a motion to have the hearing canceled.
If that motion is granted, the judge must decide whether to release the person from jail.
The two-year period under which someone is in jail also means that someone must be on probation for five years before he or she is eligible for parole.
People convicted of murder, forcible rape, aggravated assault, domestic battery, burglary, kidnapping, child molestation, sexual assault, armed robbery, robbery, sexual exploitation, sexual abuse, or theft are ineligible for parole until their sentences have been served.
Utah has one of the shortest waiting periods for parole and probation in the country.
It takes two years for a person to complete their sentence.
The state’s probation officer, who has discretion over who is released from prison, can consider a person’s age, the severity of the crime, and other factors in determining whether the person should be released.
The new law requires a person in prison or probation to serve the remaining two years of their sentence, regardless of whether they have completed their sentence and are eligible for release.
It also allows for an appeal if the judge does not agree with the person that they should be granted parole.
If someone is released on parole or probation, they must wait three years after the person completes their sentence before they can apply for reinstatement.
But once an offender is released, they are free to apply for any of the five- or six-month waiting periods.
If the offender is granted parole, they may apply at any time.
The person must also comply with any restrictions placed on them by their court, parole officer, or probation officer.
The statute does not allow the state to keep someone in jail indefinitely.
If someone is convicted of aggravated assault or attempted aggravated assault in Utah, the state can keep the person in jail.
The offender can also be sent to prison for up for 15 years if they were convicted of assault, battery, or other crimes committed before Feb. 1.
But if a person is sentenced to prison, the law allows the state court to send them back to jail after serving the sentence.
The legislature has not enacted a law on how much time the state must pay for an offender who is freed from jail under the law.
If there is a prison term for an inmate who has been released on probation, it must be paid by the state.
If an inmate is sentenced under the new law, he or her state must repay the money if he or it is not repaid by the time the inmate is released.
