|||| LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF IDAHO |||| Fifty-fifth Legislature First Regular Session - 1999 Moved by Smith Seconded by Hansen (23) IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES HOUSE AMENDMENT TO S.B. NO. 1041 1 AMENDMENT TO SECTION 1 2 On page 1 of the printed bill, delete line 20 and insert: 3 "(g) First degree kidnapping; ".
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE RS 08519 This bill would provide that a juvenile at least 14 years of age who commits the offense of kidnapping may be charged, arrested and proceeded against as an adult. Kidnapping has long been recognized as one of the most serious of violent criminal offenses and is comparable to the other "automatically waivable" offenses. First degree kidnapping carries a maximum penalty of death or life imprisonment, while second degree kidnapping carries a maximum penalty of twenty- five years in prison. Recent incidents have shown that kidnapping is a crime sometimes committed by juveniles and that such events can create a grave risk to the lives and safety of innocent persons. The addition of kidnapping to the list of "automatically waivable" offenses will repair an omission in this statute. The bill would also make a grammatical correction that will clarify the intent of the statute. FISCAL NOTE There is no fiscal impact on the state general fund.
