SB 6 was a major bail reform bill passed in the last Texas Legislative Session. As a part of the reforms, SB 6 enacted 17.027 of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure which applies when a defendant is out on bond for a felony charge and is arrested again on a new felony charge in the same county. Article 17.027 states that the defendant must be magistrated by the judge over his pending case. The statute also says that the provision is not to be interpreted to change the timing requirements set out in article 15.17 (which requires magistration within 48 hours of arrest). On today's episode, Guest Thomas R. Cox, III discusses how this provision is being implemented in Dallas County. We also discuss other criminal justice reform issues on this episode of The Bail Post.
