Administrative Order 93-5: Amending VERA Point Scale Release System for Canyon County

Whereas it has come to this Court's attention that the present VERA Point Scale Release System being utilized by the Canyon County Pre-Trial Release Division makes no provision to consider that a defendant has been charged with violating a protection order and

Whereas the violation of a protection order is considered by the Court and the local judiciary to be a serious matter and worthy of consideration in the process of determining whether or not a defendant should be admitted to a recognizance release,

It is hereby ordered that the VERA Point Scale Release System being used by the Canyon County Pre-Trial Release Division is amended to provide for the subtraction of 2 points from the VERA point score for any defendant charged with the violation of a protection order.

It is further ordered that all other provisions of this Court's Administrative Order 89-2 shall remain in full force and effect.

Dated this 19th day of March, 1993.

Signed by Jim R. Doolittle, Administrative District Judge
