Date Introduced 01/13/2020

The bill makes an offender serving a sentence in the department
of corrections for a felony offense that was committed while the offender
was 18 to 24 years of age eligible for parole after the offender serves 50%
of the sentence and after the offender has served at least 15 calendar years
in prison. There is a presumption, subject to the parole board's discretion,

that the offender will be released on parole if the offender has not had any
code of penal discipline violations in the last 5 years and no class I code
of penal discipline violations in the last 10 years.
The department of corrections operates a specialized program for
offenders who are serving a prison sentence for a felony offense
committed while the offender was a juvenile as a result of criminal
charges filed by direct file or transfer proceedings. The bill would expand
program eligibility to adults serving a sentence for a felony that was
committed when the person was 18 to 24 years of age.
