Sex offenses by corrections personnel.
Source of Expenditure Increase:
The creation of a new criminal offense punishable by probation or incarceration creates a potential cost for that supervision or incarceration. Each year of incarceration, per inmate, will cost the State, in current dollars, approximately $33,000 for the cost of incarceration and approximately $10,680 for medical costs.
Though there are no current measures that would allow for an accurate prediction of the number of individuals sentenced pursuant to the proposed legislation, it is assumed that the actual number of individuals sentenced would be low.
