             227      criminal protective orders with or without the assistance of an attorney.
             228          [(8)] (9) At the time an arrest for domestic violence is made, the arresting officer shall
             229      provide the alleged perpetrator with written notice containing [the following information]:
             230          (a) the [requirements] release conditions described in Subsection (1) and notice that

             246      the court appearance or may extend it for good cause.
             247          [(9)] (11) In addition to the provisions of Subsections (1) through [(6)] (7), because of
             248      the unique and highly emotional nature of domestic violence crimes, the high recidivism rate
             249      of violent offenders, and the demonstrated increased risk of continued acts of violence
             250      subsequent to the release of an offender who has been arrested for domestic violence, it is the
             251      finding of the Legislature that domestic violence crimes, as defined in Section 77-36-1 , are
             252      crimes for which bail may be denied if there is substantial evidence to support the charge, and
             253      if the court finds by clear and convincing evidence that the alleged perpetrator would


             254      constitute a substantial danger to an alleged victim of domestic violence if released on bail. [If
             255      bail is denied under this Subsection (9), it shall be under the terms and conditions described in
             256      Subsections (1) through (6).]

             261      shall appear in person or by video before the court or a magistrate within one judicial day after
             262      the arrest.
             263          (2) A defendant who has been charged by citation, indictment, or information with an
             264      offense involving domestic violence but has not been arrested, shall appear before the court in
             265      person for arraignment or initial appearance as soon as practicable, but no later than 14 days
             266      after the next day on which court is in session following the issuance of the citation or the
             267      filing of the indictment or information.
             268          (3) At the time of an appearance under Subsection (1) or (2), the court shall determine
             269      the necessity of imposing a pretrial protective order or other condition of pretrial release
             270      including, but not limited to, participating in an electronic or other type of monitoring
             271      program, and shall state its findings and determination in writing.
             272          (4) Appearances required by this section are mandatory and may not be waived.
             273          Section 5. Section 77-36-2.7 is amended to read:
             274           77-36-2.7. Dismissal -- Diversion prohibited -- Plea in abeyance -- Pretrial
             275      protective order pending trial.
             276          (1) Because of the serious nature of domestic violence, the court, in domestic violence
             277      actions:
             278          (a) may not dismiss any charge or delay disposition because of concurrent divorce or
             279      other civil proceedings;
             280          (b) may not require proof that either party is seeking a dissolution of marriage before
             281      instigation of criminal proceedings;


             282          (c) shall waive any requirement that the victim's location be disclosed other than to the
             283      defendant's attorney[, upon a showing that there is any possibility of further violence,] and
             284      order the defendant's attorney not to disclose the victim's location to [his] the client;
             285          (d) shall identify, on the docket sheets, the criminal actions arising from acts of
             286      domestic violence;
             287          (e) may dismiss a charge on stipulation of the prosecutor and the victim; and
             288          (f) may hold a plea in abeyance, in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 2a,
             289      Pleas in Abeyance, making treatment or any other requirement for the defendant a condition of
             290      that status.

             313      section is a third degree felony; and
             314          (ii) if the original arrest or subsequent charge filed is a misdemeanor, an offense under

             324      charges against a defendant accused of a domestic violence offense, the specific reasons for
             325      dismissal shall be recorded in the court file and made a part of the statewide domestic violence
             326      network described in Section 78B-7-113 .
             327          (b) The court shall transmit the dismissal to the statewide domestic violence network.
             328          (c) Any pretrial protective orders, including jail release court orders and jail release
             329      agreements, related to the dismissed domestic violence criminal charge shall also be
             330      dismissed.
             331          (5) When the privilege of confidential communication between spouses, or the
             332      testimonial privilege of spouses is invoked in any criminal proceeding in which a spouse is the
             333      victim of an alleged domestic violence offense, the victim shall be considered to be an
             334      unavailable witness under the Utah Rules of Evidence.
             335          (6) The court may not approve diversion for a perpetrator of domestic violence.

             363      program reasonably available or that the treatment or therapy is not necessary.
