Arkonwn TIMtS, FritJuy. M«y 31, 1*74 Joint Committee Questions Criminal Process Revision *' tlTTLE ROCK (AP) -- Dur- Jnx « legislative Joint Interim | Judiciary Committee meeting Thursday, the question arose of who has the authority to m a k e changes in the criminal procedures in Arkansas courts. - The Criminal Code Revision Committee revealed its suggested changes in the criminal 'procedures to the legislative committee Thursday. The revi ^sion committee has been working on the changes for about "'"three years. The " changes deal with how and why a person may be arrested, the search and seizure of evidence, pretrial procedures, guilty pleas, speedy trials, jury trial and appeal procedures. Under its rule m a k i n g authority, the stale Supreme Court i-can impose procedural changes on state courts. However, the legislature has the sole aulhor- .jty to m a k e changes involving the law itself. Atty. Gen. Jim Guy Tucker suggested that proposed proce -durcs he presented to the Su . preme Court within (.wo weeks -and that the court hold hearings on ihe oroposed changes. CONFLICT WITH U.S. Ed Bethune, chairman of the revision committee, said in · some cases Arkansas law con flicls with decisions by the U.S Supreme Court, while in other "cases (here is no appropriatf state law and the law is scat tered throughout the statute books. The revised code would im prove and collect court proce- lures, Bethune said. The state criminal code was adopted In 1876 and there never as been a major revision. State Sen. Max Howell of Jacksonville criticized one of he proposed revisions which would give law officers the au- hority to arrest, without a w a r - r a n t , a person believed to have committed a crime. The proposal would require hat the officer have reasonable cause for making the arrest. Howell said the potential of .he proposal is dangerous. He said that in many instances, he arresting officer -- parti- culary in rural areas -- would be exposed to possible civil ae- on. Frank Newell, staff director of the revision commission, em- hasized that reasonable cause would be required. "I reallj don't see that the officer is go- .ng to be exposed to a greal deal of civil liability that he is not already exposed bo," he added. Somj of the other proposec revisions were: --That arrests would not al ways be required for mis demeanors and a new proce dure allowing an officer to is sue a citation would be per mitted. --Both the prosecution and defense would be allowed to learn before trial* what facts evidence or witnesses the othe: side had. --All persons accused of a crime would have the right I be tried within nine months. Guns (CONTTMIED FROM PAGE ONX) prisoners will be returned. The prisoners involved include 73 Israelis and 408 Syrians. Moroccans and Iraqis. -Control by each side of its own air space. --Repatriation within 10 days of the signing of the bodies of prisoners who have died. The two sides continue to d i f - fer over the type of U.N. presence in the buffer zone. The Syrians have spoken of U.N. "observers," while Israel wants a U.N. "force" to actively protect the truce from violations. There will be 1,250 U.N. personnel with defensive weapons. At the United Nations, the Security Council met for nine minutes Thursday in an effort to discuss Ihe .force, but China and the Soviet Union had the issue shelved on the ground that the pact should be signed first.
