FORMERLY HOUSE BILL

NO. 966

AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 11, § 615, DELAWARE CODE, RELATING TO DRUG DETOXIFICATION CENTERS BY EXCLUDING CERTAIN CRIMES FROM THE EFFECT OF THIS SECTION.

WHEREAS, Chapter 250, Volume 58, Laws of Delaware, established Drug Detoxification Centers and permitted all individuals arrested for any crime to request and be admitted to said Drug Detoxification Centers; and

WHEREAS, the General Assembly believes that the needs of the criminal justice system would best be served by limiting the types of crimes to be affected by this section because of the lax security at the centers;

NOW, THEREFORE,

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Delaware:

Section 1. Amend § 615(c), Title 11, Delaware Code, by inserting after the word "crime" and before the word "under" as they appear in the first sentence, the phrase "which is not a felony".
