HB17-1150 - No Bail For Stalking And Domestic Violence Offenders

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning disallowing a court from granting bail after conviction to offenders who have committed certain felony crimes.

Current law allows a court to grant bail after a person is convicted, pending sentencing or appeal; except that no bail is allowed for persons convicted of certain specific crimes. To this list of crimes the bill adds a second or subsequent conviction for stalking that occurs within 7 years after the date of a prior offense for which the person was convicted; stalking when there was a protection order, injunction, or condition of bond, probation, or parole or any other court order in effect that protected the victim from the person; and any offense that includes an act of domestic violence if the defendant at the time of sentencing has been previously convicted of three or more prior offenses that included an act of domestic violence and that were separately brought and tried and arising out of separate criminal episodes.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
