Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning the hearsay exception for persons with an intellectual and developmental disability when a defendant is charged with a crime against an at-risk person.

Under current law, there is an exception to the hearsay rule for a person with an intellectual and developmental disability if the out-of-court statement relates to certain specified crimes. Current law also provides increased penalties if certain crimes are committed against at-risk persons. The bill clarifies that the hearsay exception applies if the defendant is charged under the increased penalties for crimes against at-risk persons.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
