(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]
