Short description: 
CRIM CD-DOMESTIC VIOL-BURGLARY                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Criminal Code of 1961.  Provides that certain offenses      
   of domestic violence committed in the presence  of  a  minor  will  be      
   subject to a minimum sentence of imprisonment for 10 days or 300 hours      
   community  service,  or  both.   Includes various offenses of criminal      
   sexual assault as a basis for charging a  now  lesser-included  felony      
   offense  of  home  invasion.  Broadens  the  definition  of the felony      
   offense of  residential  burglary  to  include  situations  where  the      
   offender  entered with authority but then unlawfully remained in order      
   to commit a felony or theft,  and  to  include  situations  where  the      
   offender  entered  not  only  a dwelling, but also "any part thereof".      
   Revises the law so that  burglary  and  residential  burglary  are  no      
   longer  mutually  exclusive, making burglary a lesser-included offense      
   of residential burglary.                                                    
          FISCAL NOTE (Dept. of Corrections)                                   
          There will be an estimated 41 inmates added to the corrections       
          population at a cost of $5,922,300 over the first 10 years from      
          the date of enactment. There may be an additional impact from        
          other enhancements in the legislation, but this impact is            
          expected to be minimal.                                              
          CORRECTIONAL NOTE (Dept. of Corrections)                             
          Same as DOC fiscal note.
