12 petition for adoption initiated by the person or persons proposing to adopt
13 the child, or where the consent to termination has been filed by a licensed
14 adoption agency, no subsequent hearing on the merits of the petition shall be
15 held. Consents required by this act must be witnessed by a district judge or

38 On this .... day of ...., 20.., before me, the undersigned ...., ....
39 (Judge or Magistrate) of the District Court of the .... Judicial District of
40 the state of Idaho, in and for the county of ...., personally appeared ....,
41 known to me (or proved to me on the oath of ....) to be the person(s) whose

43 that he (she, they) executed the same.
44 IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and affixed my official
45 seal the day and year in this certificate first above written.
46 ...................... (District Judge or Magistrate)
47 The court shall accept a consent or a surrender and release executed in
48 another state if:
49 (1) It is witnessed by a magistrate or district judge of the state where
50 signed; or
51 (2) The court receives an affidavit or a certificate from a court of com-
52 parable jurisdiction stating that the consent or the surrender and release
53 was executed in accordance with the laws of the state in which it was exe-
54 cuted, or the court is satisfied by other showing that the consent or sur-
55 render and release was executed in accordance with the laws of the state
1 in which it was executed; or
2 (3) The court shall accept a termination or relinquishment from a sister
3 state that has been ordered by a court of competent jurisdiction under
4 like proceedings; or in any other manner authorized by the laws of a sis-
5 ter state. In a state where the father has failed to file notice of claim
6 to paternity and willingness to assume responsibility as provided for pur-
7 suant to the laws of such state, and where such failure constitutes an
8 abandonment of such child and constitutes a termination or relinquishment
9 of the rights of the putative father, the court shall accept such failure
10 as a termination in this state without further hearing on the merits, if
11 the court is satisfied that such failure constitutes a termination or
12 relinquishment of parental rights pursuant to the laws of that state.
13 g. Unless a consent to termination signed by the parent(s) of the child
14 has been filed by an adoption agency licensed in the state of Idaho, or unless
15 the consent to termination was filed in conjunction with a petition for adop-
16 tion of the child, the court shall hold a hearing.
17 h. The court may grant termination as to a parent:
18 (1) Who caused the child to be conceived as a result of rape, statutory
19 rape, incest, lewd conduct with a minor child under sixteen (16) years, or
20 sexual abuse of a child under the age of sixteen (16) years, as defined in
21 section 16-2002 o., Idaho Code; or
22 (2) Who murdered or intentionally killed the other parent of the child;
23 or if the court determines the parent has been convicted of murder or vol-
24 untary manslaughter of another sibling of the child or has aided, abetted,
25 conspired or solicited to commit such murder or voluntary manslaughter
26 and/or if the court determines the parent has been convicted of a felony
27 assault or battery which resulted in serious bodily injury to the child or
28 a sibling; or
29 (3) Who has been incarcerated and has no possibility of parole; or
30 (4) If a court determines the child to be an abandoned infant.
31 There is a rebuttable presumption that termination of the parent-child rela-
32 tionship in any of the circumstances provided in subsection g. of this section
33 is in the best interest of the child.
34 i. If the parent has a disability, as defined in this chapter, the parent
35 shall have the right to provide evidence to the court regarding the manner in
36 which the use of adaptive equipment or supportive services will enable the
37 parent to carry out the responsibilities of parenting the child. Nothing in
38 this section shall be construed to create any new or additional obligation on
39 state or local governments to purchase or provide adaptive equipment or sup-
40 portive services for parents with disabilities.

22 18-608. CERTAIN ABORTIONS PERMITTED -- CONDITIONS AND GUIDELINES. The
23 provisions of sections 18-605 and 18-606, Idaho Code, shall not apply to and
24 neither this act, nor other controlling rule of Idaho law, shall be deemed to
25 make unlawful an abortion performed by a physician if:
26 (1) When performed upon a woman who is in the first trimester of preg-
27 nancy, the same is performed following the attending physician's consultation
28 with the pregnant patient and a determination by the physician that such abor-
29 tion is appropriate in consideration of such factors as in his medical judg-
30 ment he deems pertinent , including, but not limited to, physical, emotional,
31 psychological and/or familial factors, that the child would be born with some
32 physical or mental defect, that the pregnancy resulted from rape, statutory
33 rape, incest or other felonious intercourse, and a legal presumption is hereby
34 created that all illicit intercourse with a girl below the age of sixteen (16)
35 years shall be deemed felonious for purposes of this section, the patient's
36 age and any other consideration relevant to her well-being or directly or
37 otherwise bearing on her health and, in addition to medically diagnosable mat-
38 ters , including, but not limited to, such factors as the potential stigma of
39 unwed motherhood, the imminence of psychological harm or stress upon the men-
40 tal and physical health of the patient, the potential stress upon all con-
41 cerned of an unwanted child or a child brought into a family already unable,
42 psychologically or otherwise, to care for it, and/or the opinion of the
43 patient that maternity or additional offspring probably will force upon her a
44 distressful life and future; the emotional or psychological consequences of
45 not allowing the pregnancy to continue, and the aid and assistance available
46 to the pregnant patient if the pregnancy is allowed to continue; provided, in
47 consideration of all such factors, the physician may rely upon the statements
48 of and the positions taken by the pregnant patient, and the physician shall
49 not be deemed to have held himself out as possessing special expertise in such
50 matters nor shall he be held liable, civilly or otherwise, on account of his
51 good faith exercise of his medical judgment, whether or not influenced by any
52 such nonmedical factors. Abortions permitted by this subsection shall only be
53 lawful if and when performed in a hospital or in a physician's regular office
1 or a clinic which office or clinic is properly staffed and equipped for the
2 performance of such procedures and respecting which the responsible physician
3 or physicians have made satisfactory arrangements with one (1) or more acute
4 care hospitals within reasonable proximity thereof providing for the prompt
5 availability of hospital care as may be required due to complications or emer-
6 gencies that might arise.
7 (2) When performed upon a woman who is in the second trimester of preg-
8 nancy, the same is performed in a hospital and is, in the judgment of the
9 attending physician, in the best medical interest of such pregnant woman, con-
10 sidering those factors enumerated in subsection (1) of this section and such
11 other factors as the physician deems pertinent.
12 (3) When performed upon a woman who is in the third trimester of preg-
13 nancy the same is performed in a hospital and, in the judgment of the attend-
14 ing physician, corroborated by a like opinion of a consulting physician con-
15 curring therewith, either is necessary for the preservation of the life of
16 such woman or, if not performed, such pregnancy would terminate in birth or
17 delivery of a fetus unable to survive. Third trimester abortions undertaken
18 for preservation of the life of a pregnant patient, as permitted by this sub-
19 section, shall, consistent with accepted medical practice and with the well-
20 being and safety of such patient, be performed in a manner consistent with
21 preservation of any reasonable potential for survival of a viable fetus.

37 18-6605 and 18-6608, Idaho Code, or are recidivists as defined in this chap-
38 ter, for the purpose of determining whether the offender should be designated
39 as a violent sexual predator presenting a high risk of reoffense.
40 (2) The board shall review offenders who were sentenced and convicted for
41 crimes enumerated in subsection (1) of this section and recidivists as defined
42 in this chapter, who have been released under supervision, for the purpose of
43 determining whether the offender should be designated as a violent sexual
44 predator presenting a high risk of reoffense. Such review shall be undertaken
45 upon request of the court having jurisdiction over the offender on probation
46 or of the parole commission if the offender has been released on parole
47 regardless of whether the offender has been reviewed by the board prior to
48 release from incarceration. For purposes of seeking a board review pursuant to
49 this subsection, the court or parole commission may consider all relevant evi-
50 dence including, but not limited to, the probation or parole official's obser-
51 vations and opinions of these offenders while under supervision, in light of
52 the circumstances of the underlying offense.
53 (3) The board shall by rule:

4 (b) Set forth procedures for the approval, certification and quality
5 assurance of evaluators pursuant to this section.

7 exceed one hundred fifty dollars ($150) and a nonrefundable annual recer-
8 tification processing fee not to exceed one hundred fifty dollars ($150).
9 (4) The board shall establish guidelines to determine whether an offender
10 scheduled for release is a violent sexual predator presenting a high risk of
11 reoffense. The guidelines shall be established with the assistance of sexual
12 offender treatment and law enforcement professionals who have, by education,
13 experience or training, expertise in the assessment and treatment of sexual
15 (a) Factors to be used in establishment of the guidelines must be sup-
16 ported in the sexual offender assessment field as criteria reasonably
17 related to the risk of reoffense and be objective criteria that can be
18 gathered in a consistent and reliable manner.
19 (b) The guidelines shall include, but are not limited to, the following
20 general categories for risk assessment: seriousness of the offense,
21 offense history, whether the offense was predatory, characteristics of the
22 offender, characteristics of the victim, the relationship of the offender
23 to the victim, the number of victims and the number of violations of each
25 (5) If the offender has indicated an intention to reoffend if released
26 into the community and the available record reveals credible evidence to sup-
27 port this finding, then the offender shall be deemed a violent sexual preda-
28 tor regardless of application of the guidelines.
29 (6) Once the board has made its determination, it shall set forth written
30 findings which shall include:
31 (a) The board's risk assessment and the reasons upon which the risk
32 assessment was based; and
33 (b) The board's determination whether the offender should be designated
34 as a violent sexual predator and the reasons upon which the determination
35 was based.
36 (7) The board shall have authority to promulgate rules to carry out the
37 provisions of this chapter.

30 murder in the first degree shall be liable for the imposition of the penalty
31 of death if such person killed, intended a killing, or acted with reckless
32 indifference to human life, irrespective of whether such person directly com-
33 mitted the acts that caused death.
34 (2) Where a person is sentenced to serve a term in the penitentiary,
35 after conviction of a crime which falls within the provisions of section
36 20-223, Idaho Code, except in cases where the court retains jurisdiction, the
37 comments and arguments of the counsel for the state and the defendant relative
38 to the sentencing and the comments of the judge relative to the sentencing
39 shall be recorded. If the comments are recorded electronically, they need not
40 be transcribed. Otherwise, they shall be transcribed by the court reporter.

44 provided in section 18-4004A, Idaho Code; and
45 (b) The jury, or the court if a jury is waived, finds beyond a reasonable
46 doubt at least one (1) statutory aggravating circumstance. Where a statu-
47 tory aggravating circumstance is found, the defendant shall be sentenced
48 to death unless mitigating circumstances which may be presented are found
49 to be sufficiently compelling that the death penalty would be unjust. The
50 jury shall not direct imposition of a sentence of death unless it unani-
51 mously finds at least one (1) statutory aggravating circumstance and unan-
1 imously determines that the penalty of death should be imposed.
2 (4) Notwithstanding any court rule to the contrary, when a defendant is
3 adjudicated guilty of murder in the first degree, whether by acceptance of a
4 plea of guilty, by verdict of a jury, or by decision of the trial court sit-
5 ting without a jury, no presentence investigation shall be conducted; provided
6 however, that if a special sentencing proceeding is not held or if a special
7 sentencing proceeding is held but no statutory aggravating circumstance has

14 18-4004A, Idaho Code, a special sentencing proceeding shall be held
15 promptly for the purpose of hearing all relevant evidence and arguments of
16 counsel in aggravation and mitigation of the offense. The special sentenc-
17 ing proceeding shall be conducted before a jury unless a jury is waived by
18 the defendant with the consent of the prosecuting attorney.
19 (b) If the defendant's guilt was determined by a jury verdict, the same
20 jury shall hear the special sentencing proceeding; provided however, that

23 court may dismiss that jury and convene a new jury of twelve (12) persons,
24 plus alternate jurors as the trial court deems necessary pursuant to sec-
25 tion 19-1904, Idaho Code.

28 special sentencing proceeding is necessary for any reason including, but

32 trial court deems necessary pursuant to section 19-1904, Idaho Code,
33 unless such jury is waived.
34 (d) If a special sentencing proceeding is conducted before a newly impan-
35 eled jury pursuant to the provisions of subsection (5)(b) or (5)(c) of
36 this section, the state and the defense may present evidence to inform the
37 jury of the nature and circumstances of the murder for which the defendant
38 was convicted. The newly impaneled jury shall be instructed that the
39 defendant has previously been found guilty of first-degree murder and that
40 the jury's purpose is limited to making findings relevant for sentencing.
41 (6) At the special sentencing proceeding, the state and the defendant
42 shall be entitled to present all relevant evidence in aggravation and mitiga-
43 tion. Disclosure of evidence to be relied on in the sentencing proceeding
44 shall be made in accordance with Idaho criminal rule 16. Evidence admitted at
45 trial shall be considered and need not be repeated at the sentencing hearing.
46 (7) The jury shall be informed as follows:
47 (a) If the jury finds that a statutory aggravating circumstance exists
48 and no mitigating circumstances exist which would make the imposition of
49 the death penalty unjust, the defendant will be sentenced to death by the
51 (b) If the jury finds the existence of a statutory aggravating circum-
52 stance but finds that the existence of mitigating circumstances makes the
53 imposition of the death penalty unjust or the jury cannot unanimously
54 agree on whether the existence of mitigating circumstances makes the impo-
55 sition of the death penalty unjust, the defendant will be sentenced to a
1 term of life imprisonment without the possibility of parole; and
2 (c) If the jury does not find the existence of a statutory aggravating
3 circumstance or if the jury cannot unanimously agree on the existence of a
4 statutory aggravating circumstance, the defendant will be sentenced by the
5 court to a term of life imprisonment with a fixed term of not less than
6 ten (10) years.

11 (i) Whether the statutory aggravating circumstance has been proven
12 beyond a reasonable doubt; and
13 (ii) If the statutory aggravating circumstance has been proven
14 beyond a reasonable doubt, whether all mitigating circumstances, when
15 weighed against the aggravating circumstance, are sufficiently com-
16 pelling that the death penalty would be unjust.
17 (b) If a jury has been waived, the court shall:
18 (i) Make written findings setting forth any statutory aggravating
19 circumstance found beyond a reasonable doubt;
20 (ii) Set forth in writing any mitigating circumstances considered;
22 (iii) Upon weighing all mitigating circumstances against each statu-
23 tory aggravating circumstance separately, determine whether mitigat-
24 ing circumstances are found to be sufficiently compelling that the
25 death penalty would be unjust and detail in writing its reasons for
26 so finding.
27 (9) The following are statutory aggravating circumstances, at least one
28 (1) of which must be found to exist beyond a reasonable doubt before a sen-
29 tence of death can be imposed:

46 (h) The defendant, by prior conduct or conduct in the commission of the
47 murder at hand, has exhibited a propensity to commit murder which will
48 probably constitute a continuing threat to society.
49 (i) The murder was committed against a former or present peace officer,
50 executive officer, officer of the court, judicial officer or prosecuting
51 attorney because of the exercise of official duty or because of the

49 amended to read as follows:
50 20-223. PAROLE AND RULES GOVERNING -- RESTRICTIONS -- PSYCHIATRIC OR PSY-
51 CHOLOGICAL EXAMINATION. (a) Subject to section 19-2513, Idaho Code, the com-
52 mission shall have the power to establish rules, policies or procedures in
53 compliance with chapter 52, title 67, Idaho Code, under which any prisoner,
1 excepting any under sentence of death, may be allowed to go upon parole but to
2 remain while on parole in the legal custody and under the control of the board
3 and subject to be taken back into confinement at the direction of the commis-
4 sion. Any prisoner who is granted parole under the interstate compact may be
5 required to post a bond prior to release or prior to such acceptance under the
6 interstate compact; such bond may be posted by the prisoner, the prisoner's
7 family, or other interested party. Failure to successfully complete parole may
8 be grounds for forfeiture of the bond. Upon successful completion of parole,
9 the amount of the bond will be returned, less an amount for administrative
10 costs as determined by commission rule, in compliance with chapter 52, title
11 67, Idaho Code. Funds collected through the bonding process will be placed in
12 a separate commission receipts fund which is hereby created in the state
13 treasury, and utilized for the extradition of said parole violators.
14 (b) No person serving a sentence for rape, statutory rape, incest, com-
15 mitting a lewd act upon a child, crime against nature, or with an intent or an
16 assault with intent to commit any of the said crimes or whose history and con-
17 duct indicate to the commission that he is a sexually dangerous person, shall
18 be released on parole except upon the examination and evaluation of one (1) or
19 more psychiatrists or psychologists to be selected by the commission and such
20 evaluation shall be duly considered by the commission in making its parole
21 determination. The commission may, in its discretion, likewise require a simi-
22 lar examination and evaluation for persons serving sentences for crimes other
23 than those above enumerated. No psychiatrist or psychologist making such eval-
24 uation shall be held financially responsible to any person for denial of
25 parole by the commission or for the results of the future acts of such person
26 if he be granted parole.
27 (c) Before considering the parole of any prisoner, the commission shall
28 afford the prisoner the opportunity to be interviewed by the commission, a
29 commissioner or other designated commission staff. A designated report pre-
30 pared by commission staff or a designated department of correction employee
31 which is specifically to be used by the commission in making a parole determi-
32 nation shall be exempt from public disclosure; such reports contain informa-
33 tion from the presentence investigation report, medical or psychological
34 information, victim information, designated confidential witness information
35 and criminal history information. A parole shall be ordered when, in the dis-
36 cretion of the commission, it is in the best interests of society, and the
37 commission believes the prisoner is able and willing to fulfill the obliga-
38 tions of a law-abiding citizen. Such determination shall not be a reward of
39 clemency and it shall not be considered to be a reduction of sentence or a
40 pardon. The commission may also by its rules, policies or procedures fix the
41 times and conditions under which any application denied may be reconsidered.
42 No action may be maintained against the commission and/or any of its members
43 in any court in connection with any decision taken by the commission to parole
44 a prisoner and neither the commission nor its members shall be liable in any
45 way for its action with respect thereto.
46 (d) In making any parole or commutation decision with respect to a pris-
47 oner, the commission shall consider the compliance of the prisoner with any
48 order of restitution which may have been entered according to section 19-5304,
49 Idaho Code. The commission may make compliance with such an order of restitu-
50 tion a condition of parole.
51 (e) Except as provided in subsection (a) of this section, no provision of
52 chapter 52, title 67, Idaho Code, shall apply to the commission.
53 (f) Subject to the limitations of this subsection and notwithstanding any
54 fixed term of confinement or minimum period of confinement as provided in sec-
55 tion 19-2513, Idaho Code, the commission may parole an inmate for medical rea-
1 sons. A prisoner may be considered for medical parole only when the prisoner
2 is permanently incapacitated or terminally ill and when the commission reason-
3 ably believes the prisoner no longer poses a threat to the safety of society.
4 For the purposes of this section "permanently incapacitated" shall mean a per-
5 son who, by reason of an existing physical condition which is not terminal, is
6 permanently and irreversibly physically incapacitated. For the purposes of
7 this section "terminally ill" shall mean a person who has an incurable condi-
8 tion caused by illness or disease and who is irreversibly terminally ill.
9 (g) The commission shall prepare and send to the house and senate judi-
10 ciary committees annually a report containing the names, medical condition and
11 current status of all persons granted parole pursuant to subsection (f) of
12 this section.

17 all cases of convictions for offenses against the state, except treason or
18 imprisonment on impeachment, but such respites or reprieves shall not extend
19 beyond the next session of the commission; and such commission shall at such
20 session continue or determine such respite or reprieve, or may commute or par-
21 don the offense as herein provided. In cases of conviction of treason, the
22 governor shall have the power to suspend the execution of the sentence until
23 the case shall be reported to the legislature at its next regular session,
24 when the legislature shall either pardon or commute the sentence, direct its
25 execution or grant a further reprieve. The commission shall have full and
26 final authority to grant commutations and pardons except with respect to sen-
27 tences for murder, voluntary manslaughter, rape, statutory rape, kidnapping,
28 lewd and lascivious conduct with a minor child, and manufacture or delivery of
29 controlled substances. The commission shall conduct commutation and pardon
30 proceedings pursuant to rules and regulations adopted in accordance with law
31 and may attach such conditions as it deems appropriate in granting pardons or
32 commutations. With respect to commutations and pardons for the offenses named
33 above, the commission's determination shall only constitute a recommendation
34 subject to approval or disapproval by the governor. No commutation or pardon
35 for such named offenses shall be effective until presented to and approved by
36 the governor. Any commutation or pardon recommendation not so approved within
37 thirty (30) days of the commission's recommendation shall be deemed denied.

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
The purpose of this legislation is to provide parameters for the
offense of statutory rape that would give prosecutors more
guidance and could ensure greater uniformity of charges across
the state of Idaho. Currently statutory rape cases are treated
differently in the various jurisdictions. While some individuals
get probation, others are sent to prison; all must register as
sex offenders. Current law can be used by angry parents to
pressure law enforcement to seek criminal charges against
consensual acts between teens. On the other hand, current law on
statutory rape can be used as a plea bargaining tool in some
There is no fiscal impact to the state or local jurisdictions.
