CONNECTICUT PENAL CODE—UPDATED AND REVISED

By: Christopher Reinhart, Senior Attorney

You asked for a breakdown of all offenses in the Connecticut Penal Code (Title 53a of the General Statutes). You asked for them listed in a chart with information on penalties.

SUMMARY

This report lists all of the crimes contained in the Penal Code. It updates previous reports to reflect changes through the June 11, 2008 Special Session, including two new crimes created by legislation in 2008 that are likely to be codified as part of the Penal Code: home invasion and failure to report bribery. Statutes with criminal penalties that are codified outside the Penal Code are not included in this report.

Criminal offenses in Connecticut are classified as felonies, which are punishable by imprisonment for over one year, and misdemeanors, which are punishable by imprisonment for not more than one year. In turn, felonies are classified according to severity as capital, class A, class B, class C, and class D. Misdemeanors are classified as class A, class B, and class C. There are unclassified felonies and misdemeanors which are punishable by imprisonment but not designated under one of the classes listed above.

Terms of imprisonment in Connecticut must be for specific periods of time. Judges set the specific sentence for each offender from a range of sentences and fines set out in the statutes. A judge may impose a fine, a term of imprisonment, or both.

This report focuses on prison sentences and we do not include fines that apply to the crimes in the Penal Code, sex offender registry requirements, and other consequences of a conviction. We also exclude statutes that are punishable as infractions or by a fine only.

Table 1 displays all of the offenses in the Penal Code arranged by classification. It displays the authorized prison sentences for each and any mandatory minimum sentence that applies. OLR Report 2008-R-0619 lists all crimes, not just those in the Penal Code, with mandatory minimum sentences.

In addition to the crimes contained in Table 1, the Penal Code also includes enhanced penalties for persistent offenders, acts of terrorism, and certain other types of offenders. These provisions are described below in Table 2.

PENAL CODE OFFENSES

Table 1 displays all of the offenses in the Penal Code arranged by classification. It displays the authorized prison sentences for each and any mandatory minimum sentence that applies.

In addition to the crimes listed in the table, the Penal Code punishes attempting or conspiring to commit any of them or acting as an accomplice to one of them.

Attempt or conspiracy is a crime “of the same grade and degree as the most serious offense which is attempted or is an object of the conspiracy, except that an attempt or conspiracy to commit a class A felony is a class B felony” (CGC 53a-51). If someone is convicted of attempt or conspiracy to commit a crime that carries a mandatory minimum sentence other than a class A felony, the offender would be subject to that mandatory minimum sentence (see State v. Moran, 264 Conn. 593 (2003)).

Someone is an accomplice or criminally liable for the acts of another if he or she acts with the mental state required to commit a crime and solicits, requests, commands, or intentionally aids another to engage in criminal conduct. These offenders can be punished as if they were the

principal offenders (CGS 53a-8). It also appears that someone who is an accomplice to a crime that is punishable by a mandatory minimum sentence would be subject to that mandatory minimum.

(53a-209)

 

*CGS 53a-28 and 53a-29 prohibit suspension or reduction of any sentence for a class A felony meaning that the 10-year minimum sentence for a class A felony becomes a mandatory minimum, unless the statute specifies otherwise. In cases noted above, the Connecticut Supreme Court has ruled that where a more serious crime carries a lesser penalty, this penalty must prevail and be applied to the less serious crime.

PERSISTENT OFFENDERS, ACTS OF TERRORISM, AND OTHER ENHANCED SENTENCES

A number of statutes authorize enhanced penalties for offenders who commit crimes contained in the Penal Code depending on their criminal record or the circumstances of the crime (such as using a weapon). Table 2 displays these provisions, including two provisions from outside the Penal Code because they enhance penalties for crimes contained in the Penal Code.
