will not appear on a ballot
The ballot title read as follows:
Courts must report to administrator, for compilation, information concerning felony sentences imposed by each judge.
Result of "Yes" Vote: "Yes" vote requires State Court Administrator to compile, as to every state judge, a publicly available record of felony sentences imposed, including defendants' criminal records.
Result of "No" Vote: "No" vote retains current recordkeeping requirements; felony sentences and criminal records remain publicly available, but are not required to be compiled as to each judge.
Summary: Currently, information concerning felony sentences and criminal records of defendants is publicly available from different sources, and the Chief Justice can require state courts to report and compile court-related information. However, current law does not require compiling that information according to the judge who imposed sentence. Measure requires every state court, whenever a judge imposes a sentence for a felony, to report the following to the State Court Administrator: (1) the defendant's criminal record, (2) the crime for which the judge imposed the sentence, and (3) the sentence the judge imposed for that crime. Measure requires the State Court Administrator to compile and maintain that information as to each sentencing judge, and to make those records available for public inspection and copying. Other provisions.
