ADDISON G. WILSON, for Committee.
TO AMEND SECTION 20-7-8320, CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, RELATING TO THE CONDITIONAL RELEASE OF JUVENILES, SO AS TO INCREASE THE MAXIMUM AGE AT WHICH A CONDITIONAL RELEASE MAY EXPIRE FROM AGE NINETEEN TO TWENTY-ONE, AND TO PROVIDE THAT PROGRAMS A JUVENILE MAY PARTICIPATE IN AS A CONDITION OF RELEASE MUST BE PROGRAMS ESTABLISHED OR APPROVED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF JUVENILE JUSTICE OR WITH WHICH THE DEPARTMENT HAS A COOPERATIVE AGREEMENT.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. Section 20-7-8320 of the 1976 Code, as added by Act 383 of 1996, is amended to read:
"Section 20-7-8320. (A) A juvenile who shall have been conditionally released from a correctional school facility shall remain under the authority of the parole board until the expiration of the specified term imposed in the juvenile's conditional aftercare release. The specified period of conditional release may expire before but not after the nineteenth twenty-first birthday of the juvenile. Each juvenile conditionally released is subject to the conditions and restrictions of the release and may at any time on the order of the parole board be returned to the custody of a correctional institution for violation of aftercare rules or conditions of release.
(B) As a condition of correctional release, the parole board may impose participation in the restitution, work, and community service programs as established or approved by the Department of Juvenile Justice."
SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
