Report Title: Domestic Violence; Abuse of a Family or Household Member; Penalties; Judiciary; Report
Description: Establishes that a 2nd offense that occurs within 5 years, rather than 1 year, of the 1st conviction of the offense of abuse of a family or household member is a misdemeanor and the person shall be termed a "repeat offender". Establishes that a 3rd or subsequent offense that occurs within 5, rather than 2, years of a 2nd or subsequent conviction of the offense is a class C felony and allows the prosecution to use prior convictions of the offense of abuse of a family or household member as evidence in the instant offense committed by a repeat offender. Requires the court to order the defendant to be immediately incarcerated to serve the mandatory sentence imposed for failure to complete the domestic violence intervention program or violation of any other condition of a sentence imposed pursuant to a deferred acceptance of guilty plea or nolo contendere plea. Requires the judiciary, in cooperation with the prosecutor and police department of each county, to annually compile and report on statistics regarding arrests, charges, convictions, and other dispositions based on the offense of abuse of a family or household member.
