House Panel Reports Bill Imposing Mandatory Prison Term For Violent Offenses

Legislation requiring courts to impose additional mandatory prison terms for certain felony violence offenses cleared a House panel Tuesday, positioning the bill for full chamber consideration this fall.

The House Judiciary Committee favorably reported the bill (HB 349*) during a rare pre-lame duck hearing. It would impose additional mandatory prison terms of five to 10 years for those convicted or who plead guilty to a felony offense of violence and to a specification that the victim suffered permanent disabling harm.
