HB2728 by Talton (Relating to violations of certain conditions of parole or mandatory supervision; providing criminal penalties.), As Introduced
The bill would amend the Penal Code by creating the offense of failure to comply with conditions of parole or mandatory supervision, which would be punishable as a state jail felony. A person would commit the offense if the person fails certain conditions of release, or fails to report to a parole officer as required on two consecutive occasions.
A state jail felony is punishable by confinement in a state jail for any term of not more than two years or less than 180 days, or, in addition to confinement, a fine not to exceed $10,000.It is assumed that this bill would not significantly affect the fiscal operations of state government.
