To Fiscal Note on
sSB-1062, File No. 681
AN ACT CONCERNING THE RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE CONNECTICUT SENTENCING COMMISSION REGARDING THE SENTENCING OF A CHILD CONVICTED OF A FELONY OFFENSE.
The fiscal note for sSB 1062 cited the number of inmates currently sentenced to life without parole for crimes they committed when they were under 18 as twenty. The correct number of offenders is four. This change reduces the amount of potential savings to the Department of Correction in the original fiscal note.
