Safe T Act
The Safety, Accountability, Fairness and Equity-Today Act, known as the SAFE-T Act passed in the early hours of January 13, 2021. Under the SAFE T Act, "entire categories of crime, such aggravated batteries, robberies, burglaries, hate crimes, aggravated DUIs, drug induced homicides, all drug offenses, including delivery of fentanyl and trafficking cases, are not eligible for detention, regardless of the severity of the crime or a persons risk to a specific person of the community, unless prosecutors prove by clear and convincing evidence the person has a high likelihood of willful flight to avoid prosecution".
