Statutes Amended In Order of Appearance
720 ILCS 5/12-3.2from Ch. 38, par. 12-3.2


Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Criminal Code of 1961. Increases the penalty for domestic battery from a Class 4 felony to a Class 3 felony if the defendant has any prior felony conviction for domestic battery.

 Correctional Note (Dept of Corrections)
 There were 414 court admissions for Class 4 domestic battery in FY10, with an average sentence of 1.1 years. These inmates would have an estimated length of stay of 13 months. Inmates sentenced for a Class 3 felony are estimated to serve 18 months in prison. Specific data addressing the statutory criteria as proposed by HB 3422 are limited, but the Department estimates that 40% of the Class 4 domestic battery court admissions would have a prior felony conviction for domestic battery; which would discount prior misdemeanor convictions, but may include prior probation dispositions. Therefore, if 166 inmates per year would be admitted for domestic battery with a previous conviction for domestic battery, a Class 3 felony with an increase in length of stay of 5 months, there would be a corrections population impact of 69 inmates, with additional operating costs of $13,639,600 and construction costs of $5,533,300 over ten years.
