Short description: 
CRIM PRO-EVIDENC PRIOR CONVCTN                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Code of Criminal  Procedure  of  1963  to  permit  the      
   admissibility  of  evidence  of  prior  convictions of a defendant for      
   domestic battery, aggravated battery committed  against  a  family  or      
   household  member, stalking, aggravated stalking, or a violation of an      
   order of protection in a related criminal prosecution for any of these      
   offenses when the victim is the same person who was the victim of  the      
   previous offense that resulted in conviction of the defendant.              
          FISCAL NOTE (Dept. of Corrections)                                   
          HB 916 would have an unknown fiscal and prison population im-        
          pact on this Dept., although the impact would be anticipated to      
          be minimal.                                                          
          CORRECTIONAL NOTE                                                    
          No change from previous note.                                        
          STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE                                           
          HB1029 fails to create a State mandate.                              
          JUDICIAL NOTE                                                        
          HB1029 cannot be determined what impact the bill will have on        
          the need to increase the number of judges in the state.              
        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 2.                                                
        Provides that the court shall consider the following  factors  in      
   weighing  the  probative value of the evidence against undue prejudice      
   to the defendant (1) proximity in time to the charged offense; (2) the      
   degree of factual similarity to the charged offense; or other relevant      
   facts and circumstances.
