Motor vehicle accidents-serious bodily injury.
The fiscal impact to the Department of Corrections is indeterminable due to an unknown number of cases.
Source of Expenditure Increase:
The creation of enhanced criminal penalties in the proposed legislation creates a potential cost for any probation supervision ordered as a result of conviction. Currently, only some misdemeanant offenders are ordered to supervised probation. The cost for traditional supervision of a probationer is approximately $1,100 per year, while the cost of supervision for a probationer under the intensive supervision program is approximately $7,300 per year.
There are no current measures that would allow for an accurate prediction of the number of individuals sentenced pursuant to the proposed legislation.
