||The North Carolina Justice Reinvestment Act
Table of Contents and Introduction
The Justice Reinvestment Act of 2011 (the JRA) made substantial changes to the law of sentencing and corrections in North Carolina. This book summarizes and analyzes those changes to help judicial officials, lawyers, corrections officials, and others do their work in a post-JRA world.
Chapters cover topics such as:
- changes the JRA made to the felony sentencing law in North Carolina,
- changes related to probation, including new limits on a judge’s authority to revoke probation,
- the expansion of the conditional discharge available
for certain drug offenders under G.S. 90-96,
- changes the JRA made to the rules about the proper place to serve a sentence, and more.
A chart of JRA effective dates and copies of relevant session laws are included as appendixes.
