No Escape Convictions For Habitual Criminals

Concerning disallowing the use of certain convictions for the purpose of adjudicating a person an habitual criminal.
Session:
2017 Regular Session

Current law states that a conviction for escape or for attempt to escape may not be used for the purpose of adjudicating a person an habitual criminal unless the conviction is based on the offender's escape or attempt to escape from a correctional facility. The bill clarifies that this prohibition applies to both current and prior convictions for escape and attempt to escape. The bill also states that for the purposes of this prohibition, 'correctional facility' does not include a community corrections facility or a halfway house.
