00 CS FOR HOUSE BILL NO. 329(JUD)
01 "An Act relating to bail and unlawful evasion."
02 BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF ALASKA:
03 * Section 1. AS 11.56.340(b) is amended to read:
04 (b) Unlawful evasion is a class C felony [A MISDEMEANOR].
05 * Sec. 2. AS 12.30.010 is amended to read:
06 Sec. 12.30.010. Bail before or after conviction. The defendant in a criminal
07 proceeding is entitled to be admitted to bail before conviction as a matter of right if the
08 alleged victim can be reasonably protected through the imposition of bail and
09 conditions of release. The defendant in a criminal case may be admitted to bail
10 after conviction only as permitted under AS 12.30.040. However, nothing in this
11 chapter allows a court to order a defendant who has not satisfied bail to be
12 released temporarily or periodically, either before trial or after conviction unless
13 (1) the defendant is charged with a misdemeanor or class B or C
14 felony and the release is because of the
15 (A) death of an immediate family member of the defendant;
02 (B) birth of the defendant's child; and
03 (2) the court solicits information from the Department of
04 Corrections regarding the defendant's conduct while incarcerated and considers
05 that information when making a decision under (1) of this subsection.
06 * Sec. 3. AS 12.30.020(b)(3) is repealed.
