             229      provide the alleged perpetrator with written notice containing [the following information]:

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

             260      appear in person or by video before the court or a magistrate within one judicial day after the

             263      offense involving domestic violence but has not been arrested, shall appear before the court in
             264      person for arraignment or initial appearance as soon as practicable, but no later than 14 days
             265      after the next day on which court is in session following the issuance of the citation or the
             266      filing of the indictment or information.
             267          (3) At the time of an appearance under Subsection (1) or (2), the court shall determine
             268      the necessity of imposing a pretrial protective order or other condition of pretrial release

             270      and shall state its findings and determination in writing.
             271          (4) Appearances required by this section are mandatory and may not be waived.
             272          Section 5. Section 77-36-2.7 is amended to read:

             278      other civil proceedings;
             279          (b) may not require proof that either party is seeking a dissolution of marriage before
             280      instigation of criminal proceedings;
             281          (c) shall waive any requirement that the victim's location be disclosed other than to the
             282      defendant's attorney[, upon a showing that there is any possibility of further violence,] and
             283      order the defendant's attorney not to disclose the victim's location to [his] the client;
             284          (d) shall identify, on the docket sheets, the criminal actions arising from acts of
             285      domestic violence;
             286          (e) may dismiss a charge on stipulation of the prosecutor and the victim; and
             287          (f) may hold a plea in abeyance, in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 2a, Pleas
             288      in Abeyance, making treatment or any other requirement for the defendant a condition of that
             289      status.
             290          (2) When the court holds a plea in abeyance in accordance with Subsection (1)(f), the
             291      case against a perpetrator of domestic violence may be dismissed only if the perpetrator
             292      successfully completes all conditions imposed by the court. If the defendant fails to complete
             293      any condition imposed by the court under Subsection (1)(f), the court may accept the
             294      defendant's plea.
             295          (3) (a) Because of the likelihood of repeated violence directed at those who have been
             296      victims of domestic violence in the past, when any defendant is charged with a crime involving
             297      domestic violence, the court may, during any court hearing where the defendant is present,
             298      issue [an] a pretrial protective order, pending trial:
             299          (i) enjoining the defendant from threatening to commit or committing acts of domestic
             300      violence or abuse against the victim and any designated family or household member;
             301          (ii) prohibiting the defendant from harassing, telephoning, contacting, or otherwise
             302      communicating with the victim, directly or indirectly;
             303          (iii) removing and excluding the defendant from the victim's residence and the
             304      premises of the residence;


             305          (iv) ordering the defendant to stay away from the residence, school, place of
             306      employment of the victim, and the premises of any of these, or any specified place frequented
             307      by the victim and any designated family member; and
             308          (v) ordering any other relief that the court considers necessary to protect and provide
             309      for the safety of the victim and any designated family or household member.
             310          (b) Violation of an order issued pursuant to this section is punishable as follows:
             311          (i) if the original arrest or subsequent charge filed is a felony, an offense under this
             312      section is a third degree felony; and
             313          (ii) if the original arrest or subsequent charge filed is a misdemeanor, an offense under
             314      this section is a class A misdemeanor.
             315          (c) (i) The court shall provide the victim with a certified copy of any pretrial protective
             316      order that has been issued [pursuant to this section] if the victim can be located with reasonable
             317      effort.
             318          (ii) The court shall also transmit the pretrial protective order to the statewide domestic
             319      violence network.
             320          (d) Issuance of a pretrial or sentencing protective order supercedes a written jail release
             321      agreement or a written jail release court order issued by the court at the time of arrest.
             322          (4) (a) When a court dismisses criminal charges or a prosecutor moves to dismiss
             323      charges against a defendant accused of a domestic violence offense, the specific reasons for
             324      dismissal shall be recorded in the court file and made a part of the statewide domestic violence
             325      network described in Section 78B-7-113 .
             326          (b) The court shall transmit the dismissal to the statewide domestic violence network.
             327          (c) Any pretrial protective orders, including jail release court orders and jail release
             328      agreements, related to the dismissed domestic violence criminal charge shall also be dismissed.
             329          (5) When the privilege of confidential communication between spouses, or the
             330      testimonial privilege of spouses is invoked in any criminal proceeding in which a spouse is the
             331      victim of an alleged domestic violence offense, the victim shall be considered to be an
             332      unavailable witness under the Utah Rules of Evidence.
             333          (6) The court may not approve diversion for a perpetrator of domestic violence.
             334          Section 6. Section 77-36-5 is amended to read:
             335           77-36-5. Sentencing -- Restricting contact with victim -- Electronic monitoring --


             336      Counseling -- Cost assessed against defendant -- Sentencing protective order.
             337          (1) (a) When a defendant is found guilty of a crime involving domestic violence and a
             338      condition of the sentence restricts the defendant's contact with the victim, [an] a sentencing
             339      protective order may be issued [or, if one has already been issued, it may be extended] under
             340      Subsection 77-36-5.1 (2) for the length of the defendant's probation. [The]
             341          (b) (i) The sentencing protective order shall be in writing, and the prosecutor shall
             342      provide a certified copy of that order to the victim.
             343          (ii) The court shall transmit the sentencing protective order to the statewide domestic
             344      violence network.
             345          (c) Violation of a sentencing protective order issued pursuant to this Subsection (1) is a
             346      class A misdemeanor.
             347          (2) In determining its sentence the court, in addition to penalties otherwise provided by
             348      law, may require the defendant to participate in an electronic or other type of monitoring
             349      program.
             350          (3) The court may also require the defendant to pay all or part of the costs of
             351      counseling incurred by the victim and any children affected by or exposed to the domestic
             352      violence offense, as well as the costs for the defendant's own counseling.
             353          (4) The court shall:
             354          (a) assess against the defendant, as restitution, any costs for services or treatment
             355      provided to the [abused spouse] victim and affected children of the victim or the defendant by
             356      the Division of Child and Family Services under Section 62A-4a-106 ; and
             357          (b) order those costs to be paid directly to the division or its contracted provider.
             358          (5) The court shall order the defendant to obtain and satisfactorily complete treatment
             359      or therapy in a domestic violence treatment program, as defined in Section 62A-2-101 , that is
             360      licensed by the Department of Human Services, unless the court finds that there is no licensed
             361      program reasonably available or that the treatment or therapy is not necessary.
             362          Section 7. Section 77-36-5.1 is amended to read:
             363           77-36-5.1. Conditions of probation for person convicted of domestic violence
             364      offense.
             365          (1) Before any perpetrator who has been convicted of a domestic violence offense may
             366      be placed on probation, the court shall consider the safety and protection of the victim and any

             368          (2) The court may condition probation or a plea in abeyance on the perpetrator's
