§ 3313. Classification of Rules Violation Report and Notice of Pending Charges.
(a) Each RVR shall be classified by designated staff not below the level required to conduct serious disciplinary hearings. Exception: In facilities with only one individual at the rank of correctional lieutenant or higher, an experienced correctional sergeant may classify rule violations.
Reports shall be classified as administrative or serious pursuant to sections 3314 and 3315.
(1) A CDC Form 804 (Rev. 08/00), Notice of Pending CDC-115, shall be completed by the classifying official and forwarded to Case Records within 48 hours of the inmate being charged with a serious level offense (Division “F” through “A-1”).
(A) For parole violators who are charged with any Division “A”, “B”, or “C” offense, or any inmate who refuses to sign general and/or special conditions of parole or any form required by the Department of Justice explaining his/her responsibility to register under Penal Code section 290, Case Records staff shall ensure that the CDC Form 804 is expedited to the Classification and Parole Representative to ensure revocation or revocation extension processes are initiated.
(b) Staff who review or classify a RVR shall not serve as the disciplinary hearing official for that rule violation.
(c) The classification of a RVR may be changed as follows:
(1) Before the disciplinary hearing, the official who initially classified the RVR or a staff member at a higher level may change the classification of the RVR.
(2) During the disciplinary hearing, the official conducting the hearing may reduce a serious classification to administrative as a finding of the hearing if the reduced charge meets the criteria of an administrative violation as described in section 3314.
(3) After the disciplinary hearing, the chief disciplinary officer may reduce a serious classification to administrative if the reduced charge meets the criteria of an administrative violation as described in section 3314.
(4) After the disciplinary hearing, an administrative classification shall not be changed to serious unless the chief disciplinary officer or director orders a rehearing of the charges as a serious rule violation.
(A) When a rehearing is ordered by the chief disciplinary officer or director, the inmate shall be provided all rights and procedural safeguards of a serious rule violation hearing.
(B) An order for a rehearing shall be in writing and shall include the reasons for the order. A copy of the order shall be provided to the inmate.
(C) Time limitations relative to the re-issued RVR shall commence on the date the chief disciplinary officer issues the order to re-hear pursuant to section 3320(a). Credit forfeiture will not be allowed if the time limitations were violated on the original RVR that was ordered re-issued/re-heard.
(5) If the RVR is reclassified from administrative to serious, the inmate shall receive written notice and shall be subject to the provisions of Section 3315 of these regulations.
