Current Bill Summary

SB 343 - This act modifies provisions relating to terms of imprisonment.

TERMS OF IMPRISONMENT (Section 558.011)

Under current law, certain offenders may receive early release from incarceration by conditional release. A percentage of the number of years of the sentence is required to be served before an offender is eligible for conditional release; however, the date of conditional release from a prison term may be extended up to a maximum of the entire sentence by the Parole Board if the offender fails to follow the rules and regulations of the Department of Corrections. This act repeals the provision that the Parole Board shall impose certain conditional release terms and repeals the provision that the Parole Board may extend the date of conditional release.

CREDIT FOR JAIL TIME AWAITING TRIAL (Section 558.031)

Under current law, a person receives credit toward a sentence of imprisonment for all time in prison, jail, or custody after the offense occurred and before the commencement of the sentence if the time in custody is related to the offense. This act modifies these provisions to require a person to receive credit toward a sentence of imprisonment for all time in prison, jail, or custody after conviction and before commencement of the sentence and the circuit court may award credit for time spent in prison, jail, or custody after the offense occurred and before conviction toward the service of the sentence of imprisonment. This act will be applicable to offenses occurring on or after the effective date of this act.
