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;

01 or 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 AS 12.30.020(b)(3) is repealed.
