Section 4 Initial presentation and re-examination of the release decision
(a) Information obtained by Pretrial Services through the interview of the defendant, its investigation, and the risk assessment will be presented to the court within 24 hours of the defendant's incarceration. Failure by Pretrial Services to present this information to the court within 24 hours will not result in the automatic release of a defendant.
(b) Pretrial Services must inform the court of those defendants in custody who are not released from jail 24 hours after the initial presentation by the pretrial officer. If a defendant continues to be detained 24 hours from the time of the imposition of conditions of release because of the inability to meet such conditions, the court that imposed the conditions must review the conditions on the defendant's written application or may do so on its own motion. If the court declines to modify the conditions, the judge will record in writing the reasons for that decision.
(c) Pretrial Services will inform the court of those defendants in custody who have not appeared before the court and who are not released from jail after 48 hours. In addition to the information obtained through the interview, investigation and risk assessment, the pretrial officer will provide the court with the current charge and information from the arrest document for a probable cause determination.
