HARRISBURG – A measure requiring a victim of a crime of violence to be notified of any proceeding in which conditions for bail for a defendant can be modified has passed the PA House. House Bill 2039 would require an arresting officer to provide the contact information of the victim to the magisterial district court conducting a preliminary arraignment to ensure the victim has notice of any proceedings that might change the conditions of bail. The bill would apply to personal injury crimes, crimes of violence, the sexual abuse of children, and sexual exploitation of children. The bill now goes to the state Senate for consideration.
