SB 200 - This act revises the term "stealing-related offense" as it is used in Section 570.040, RSMo, to include robbery. The act removes the requirement that a person must have received at least a 10-day jail sentence on a prior offense before a third or subsequent misdemeanor stealing-related offense can be enhanced to a Class D felony. It also specifies that a person who has previously pleaded guilty to or been found guilty of two stealing-related offenses which were committed on two separate occasions, and who subsequently pleads guilty to or is found guilty of a stealing-related offense is guilty of certain felonies depending on the nature of such stealing-related offense.
This act is identical to HB 1473 (2008) and a provision of CCS/SS/SCS/HCS/HB 62 (2009).
