Legislation to exempt certain prosecution and defense records

SB 5436/HB 1449 exempt victim impact statements from public disclosure. Documents and materials provided by defendants or their attorneys during communications regarding plea agreements, sentencing recommendations, the drug offender sentencing alternative, the parents' sentencing alternative, the special sex offender sentencing alternative, or aggravated first degree murder proceedings would also be exempt from public inspection and copying. Both bills will be heard next week in committee.
