Bill Text

PAG LIN
  1  1    Section 1.  Section 811.1, subsections 1 and 2, Code 1999,
  1  2 are amended to read as follows:
  1  3    1.  A defendant awaiting judgment of conviction and
  1  4 sentencing following either a plea or verdict of guilty of a
  1  5 class "A" felony, murder, any class "B" felony included in

  1 13    2.  A defendant appealing a conviction of a class "A"
  1 14 felony, murder, any class "B" felony included in section
  1 15 707.6A, felonious assault, felonious child endangerment,
  1 16 sexual abuse in the second degree, sexual abuse in the third
  1 17 degree, kidnapping, robbery in the first degree, arson in the

  1 19 included in section 708.11, subsection 3, or any felony
  1 20 included in section 124.401, subsection 1, paragraph "a", or a
  1 21 violation of section 124.401, subsection 1, paragraph "b".  
  1 22                           EXPLANATION 
  1 23    This bill restricts a person's ability to post a bond upon
  1 24 a conviction of or when appealing any felony stalking charge.
  1 25 The bill requires that a person who pleads to or is convicted
  1 26 at trial of any felony stalking charge remain in jail without
  1 27 bond pending sentencing.  The bill also requires any person
  1 28 sentenced to prison for felony stalking to remain in prison
  1 29 without the ability to post an appeal bond pending the final
  1 30 decision by a reviewing court.
  1 31    Current law generally permits a person awaiting sentencing
  1 32 after a plea of guilty or a conviction at trial to post bond
  1 33 and remain out of jail until a sentence has been imposed.  If
  1 34 the person is sentenced to jail or prison, and appeals the
  1 35 case, current law ordinarily allows a person to post an appeal
  2  1 bond and remain free pending the final decision by the
  2  2 reviewing court on appeal.
