The Attorney General shall appoint an advisory committee composed at least of representatives from local supervisory authorities, batterers’ intervention programs and domestic violence victims’ advocacy groups. The Attorney General, in consultation with the advisory committee, shall adopt rules that establish standards for batterers’ intervention programs. The rules adopted must include, but are not limited to:
(1) Standards for contacts between the defendant and the victim;
(2) Standards for the dissemination of otherwise confidential medical, mental health and treatment records;
(3) Standards that protect to the greatest extent practicable the confidentiality of defendants who are participating in domestic violence deferred sentencing agreements;
(4) A requirement that the designated batterers’ intervention program must report to the defendant’s local supervisory authority any criminal assaults, threats to harm the victim or any substantial violation of the program’s rules by the defendant; and
(5) Standards for batterers’ intervention programs that are most likely to end domestic violence and increase victims’ safety. [2001 c.634 §1]
