01:31 PM -- House Bill 09-1049
Representative May, prime sponsor, presented House Bill 09-1049 concerning a prohibition on accepting a plea of guilty from an illegal alien that will result in avoiding removal from this country. The bill prohibits a trial judge from accepting a plea of guilty to any charge if the defendant is in the country illegally, and the plea is a result of a plea offer that will allow the defendant to avoid removal from the country. It provides an exception in cases where the prosecuting attorney could not prove the original charges if brought to trial, and the plea offer is not intended to allow the defendant to avoid removal from the country.
The committee discussed the fiscal note. Representative May asked for the committee to postpone the bill indefinitely.
