§1349-A. Period of administrative release

1.   A person who has been convicted of a Class D or Class E crime or the Class C crime under Title 29-A, former section 2557, section 2557-A or section 2558 may be placed on administrative release for a period not to exceed one year.
[ 2007, c. 344, §7 (AMD) .]
2.   During the period of administrative release and upon application of a person placed on administrative release or of the attorney for the State or upon the court's own motion, the court may, after a hearing upon notice to the attorney for the State and the person, modify the requirements imposed by the court, add further requirements or release the person of any requirement imposed by the court that, in the court's opinion, imposes on the person an unreasonable burden.
[ 2003, c. 711, Pt. A, §19 (NEW) .]
2-A.   During the period of administrative release, if the person cannot meet a requirement of administrative release imposed by the court, the person shall bring a motion pursuant to subsection 2.
[ 2005, c. 265, §16 (NEW) .]
3.   On application of the attorney for the State or of the person placed on administrative release or on the court's own motion, the court may terminate a period of administrative release and discharge the convicted person at any time earlier than that provided in the sentence made pursuant to subsection 1 if warranted by the conduct of such person. The court may not order a termination of the period of administrative release and discharge upon the motion of the person placed on administrative release unless notice of the motion is given to the attorney for the State by the person placed on administrative release. The termination of the period of administrative release and discharge relieves the person placed on administrative release of any obligations imposed by the sentence of administrative release.
[ 2003, c. 711, Pt. A, §19 (NEW) .]
4.   A justice, in order to comply with section 1256, subsection 8, may terminate a period of administrative release that would delay commencement of a consecutive unsuspended term of imprisonment. A judge may terminate a period of administrative release that would delay commencement of a consecutive unsuspended term of imprisonment if that judge has jurisdiction over each of the sentences involved.
[ 2003, c. 711, Pt. A, §19 (NEW) .]
