HB 13-1242: Repealing Mandatory Sentencing Provisions for Violation of Bail Bond Conditions but Leaving Sentencing Range

On February 27, 2013, Rep. Brittany Pettersen introduced HB 13-1242 – Concerning a Repeal of the Mandatory Sentencing Requirement for Violation of Bail Bond Conditions. This summary is published here courtesy of the Colorado Bar Association’s e-Legislative Report.

Under current law, a person who commits the offense of violation of bail bond conditions is subject to mandatory incarceration in prison for a felony and jail for a misdemeanor. The offense also requires mandatory consecutive sentencing. This bill repeals the mandatory sentencing provisions but does not change the sentencing range. On March 26, the Judiciary Committee approved the bill and sent it, unamended, to the Appropriations Committee for consideration of the fiscal impact to the state.
