Under existing law, an offender convicted of certain violent
offenses is eligible for parole after the person has served 75% of the
sentence imposed upon the offender, less earned time granted by the
department of corrections. The bill requires an offender sentenced for
second degree murder; first degree assault; first degree kidnapping, unless
the first degree kidnapping is a class 1 felony; sexual assault; first degree
arson; first degree burglary; or aggravated robbery committed on or after
July 1, 2024, to serve at least 85% of the imposed sentence before the
offender is eligible for parole. The bill requires an offender sentenced for
the enumerated crimes committed on or after July 1, 2024, to serve 100%
of the sentence imposed if the person has twice previously been convicted
of a crime of violence.
