SECTION 837-L
Capital prosecution extraordinary assistance program
Executive (EXC) CHAPTER 18, ARTICLE 35
§ 837-l. Capital prosecution extraordinary assistance program. There
is hereby created within the division a capital prosecution
extraordinary assistance program to be administered by the commissioner,
to distribute funds to district attorneys for the prosecution of capital
cases. Such funds shall be distributed where the commissioner
determines, on the basis of a written certification by the applicant
district attorney, that due to the nature or number of capital cases
being prosecuted by the district attorney a significant financial burden
has resulted and financial assistance is necessary in order to fulfill
such district attorney's responsibilities; provided, however, that such
funds shall not be used to supplant existing resources. Such funds may
also be distributed to a district attorney who, upon the request of
another district attorney, has provided assistance in the prosecution of
a capital case.
