Current Bill Summary

SB 90 - This act modifies Section 195.211 by adding minimum prison terms for persons convicted of manufacturing or attempting to manufacture methamphetamine. First-time offenders must serve a minimum of 3 years; second-time offenders must serve a minimum of 5 years; and persistent offenders (3 or more such offenses) must serve a minimum of 10 years. The definition of "minimum prison term" prohibits eligibility for any type of early release until the term specified in these new sections has been served.

The act prohibits a suspended imposition of sentence or suspended execution of sentence disposition for a meth-related violation and mandates the sentences for meth-related violations be served consecutive to sentences for certain related crimes.

The act classifies as Class C felonies the previously- unclassified crimes of manufacturing or producing (or attempting to manufacture or produce) 5 or less grams of marijuana.
