Crimes, Corrections, & Enforcement
Bill Summary

Under current law, a person convicted of certain sex offenses is subject to an indeterminate prison sentence. The bill eliminates indeterminate prison sentences except for Colorado Jessica's Law convictions and imposes mandatory minimum determinate sentences with a requirement to serve 75% of the sentence before parole eligibility and an indeterminate term of parole. The bill specifies which sex offenders must complete mandatory sex offender treatment while in prison and which sex offenders may complete the treatment in the community while serving the community portion of the sex offender's sentence.
