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. The cost for traditional supervision of a probationer is approximately $1,100 per year, while the cost of supervision for a probationer under the intensive supervision program is approximately $7,300 per year.
There are no current measures that would allow for an accurate prediction of the number of individuals sentenced pursuant to the proposed legislation.
The fiscal impact to the judicial system is indeterminable due to an unknown number of cases.
The fiscal impact to the Department of Health is indeterminable. The Department of Health does not expect a fiscal impact, but that cannot be determined since there is no information on the number of illegal immigrants in the state.
