                    STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
                          RS 12513

     This bill is one of a series of bills that the Supreme Court has recommended in its
annual report to the Governor concerning defects or omissions in the laws, as required under
article V, section 25 of the Idaho Constitution.
     This bill amends Section 19-3934, Idaho Code, relating to the setting of bail for a
person criminally accused, to eliminate archaic references therein to "probate and
justices'" courts.

     Section 19-3934, Idaho Code, provides that a defendant, at any time after his
arrest and before conviction, may be admitted to bail.  This section goes on to state that
its provisions are applicable to "probate and justices'" courts.  Probate and justices' courts
were abolished in 1969 during court reform to become a part of the present magistrates
division of the district court and are no longer in existence by that name.
