DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL


Child molestation. Provides that a person convicted of child molesting as a Class A felony may be sentenced to life imprisonment without parole. Provides that a person convicted of child molesting who is not sentenced to life imprisonment without parole: (1) must be placed on lifetime parole when the person's term of imprisonment is completed; and (2) must be required to wear a GPS monitoring device while on lifetime parole. Allows the parole board to require a sex and violent offender to wear a GPS monitoring device while on parole. Provides that a person who violates a condition of lifetime parole after the person's lifetime parole has been revoked two or more times or after completing the person's sentence (including any credit time) commits a Class D felony, that the offense is a Class C felony if the person has a prior unrelated lifetime parole violation conviction or if the violation involves contact with a child or a victim of the child molesting offense for which the person was convicted, and that the offense is a Class B felony if the person has a prior unrelated lifetime parole violation conviction that involved contact with a child or a victim of the child molesting offense for which the person was convicted. Specifies that a person convicted of child molesting in another state whose parole is transferred to Indiana is required to be placed on lifetime parole. Provides that if a person being supervised on lifetime parole is also required to be supervised by a probation department or similar agency, the probation department or similar agency may have sole supervision of the person if the parole board finds that supervision by the probation department or other agency will be at least as stringent and effective as supervision by the parole board.
