PreTrial Diversion Bill Passed


Fact Sheet on SB 725

The Senate just passed SB 725 on a Concurrence vote of 38 to 0.  The bill now goes to the Governor for approval.  The bill’s author, Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson (D- Santa Barbara) and coauthor Senator Joel Anderson (R-Alpine) spoke in support of the bill.  We will continue to keep you posted in this bill, which is one of the top legislative priority veterans bill this year.  The bill has an urgency clause which means it goes into effect as soon as the Governor signs the bill.

SB 725; pretrial diversion, will clear the record of a servicemember with a service connected mental health condition (PTSD, TBI, etc) who was charged with a DUI, if they complete court ordered treatment.  The goal is to get these men and women into treatment and cured of their underlying problem without ruining their military career.  See PDF this page for Fact Sheet.  Courtesy Pete Conaty & Associates Office.
