Current Bill Summary

SB 869 - This act provides that a court shall have jurisdiction at the time of sentencing to enter a lifetime protection order restraining or enjoining the defendant from contacting the victim if the defendant has been found guilty of a dangerous felony. The protection order shall be effective immediately and shall be served on the defendant at the time of sentencing. Such order shall be valid for the defendant's lifetime unless:

• The victim dies;

• The conviction is dismissed, expunged, or overturned or the defendant has been pardoned; or

• The victim submits a written request to terminate the order.

If an order of protection is granted, the order shall be issued to the victim and to the law enforcement agency in which the victim resides. The sheriff shall enter all information into the Missouri Uniform Law Enforcement System (MULES) within 24 hours and MULES shall forward the information to the National Crime Information Center.

This act is identical to a provision in SCS/HCS/HB 1659 (2024).
