Bench Book for Judges and Court Personnel+ New. Improved. Still indispensable.

The Commission is pleased to announce the release of the thoroughly revised 2019 Bench Book for Judges and Court Personnel. Originally written in 2005, the Bench Book receives regular updates for rule amendments but this year additional updates have occurred. The Bench Book has always been a great resource for judiciary and court personnel and is an excellent resource for educating on interstate compact. Some of the changes for 2019 include:

  • Chapters 1 and 5 are entirely re-written
  • All case law references checked for accuracy
  • All chapters reviewed and edited for grammar, tense, consistency and clarity
  • Chapter 3 separated into 2 sections: the transfer of supervision and supervision in the receiving state
  • Commentary added to Chapter 3 emphasizing changes in managing violations, supervising compact offenders as you would in-state offenders, and imposing conditions
  • Commentary added to Chapter 4 highlighting the differences in retaking and revocation, probable cause hearings, and responsibilities/authority of sending and receiving states in the return process
