A BILL to amend and reenact §62-11B-12 of the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, relating to the Home Incarceration Act; supervision of home incarceration by circuit court; and providing that the sentencing court may transfer the supervision of a person ordered to home confinement to the probation office of another circuit for supervision.

Be it enacted by the Legislature of West Virginia:

    That §62-11B-12 of the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, be amended and reenacted to read as follows:

ARTICLE 11B. HOME INCARCERATION ACT.

§62-11B-12. Supervision of home incarceration by circuit court.

    (a) Notwithstanding any provision of this code to the contrary, in any case where a person has been ordered to home incarceration where that person is not in the custody or control of the Division of Corrections, the circuit court shall have the authority of the board of probation and parole regarding the release, early release or release on parole of the person.

    (b) Any person paroled from a sentence of home incarceration imposed by the provisions of this article shall be supervised by the probation office of the sentencing court: Provided, That the sentencing court may order that the probation office of another circuit supervise the sentence of home incarceration. If at any time during the period of parole there is reasonable cause to believe that the person paroled has violated the terms and conditions of his or her parole, he or she shall be subject to the procedures and penalties set forth in section ten, article twelve of this chapter. If at any time during the period of parole from home incarceration there is reasonable cause to believe that the person paroled has violated the terms and conditions of his or her parole and the home incarceration was imposed as an alternative sentence to another form of incarceration, he or she shall be subject to the same penalty or penalties as he or she could have received at the initial disposition hearing. Time served on parole granted shall be credited for time served toward any remainder of the maximum sentence in the event of parole revocation: Provided, That time served on parole from home incarceration may not be credited towards any reduction of sentence for good conduct towards any remainder of the maximum sentence in the event of parole revocation.



 

    NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to provide that the sentencing circuit court may transfer the supervision of a person ordered to home confinement to the probation office of another circuit for supervision.
