Read the first time January 11, 1994.
To whom was referred a Bill (H. 4358), to amend Section 16-1-20, as amended, Code of Laws of South Carolina, 1976, relating to classes of felonies and misdemeanors, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same, and recommend that the same do pass:
JAMES H. HODGES, for Committee.
TO AMEND SECTION 16-1-20, AS AMENDED, CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, RELATING TO CLASSES OF FELONIES AND MISDEMEANORS, SO AS TO PROVIDE THAT THE MINIMUM TERM OF IMPRISONMENT DOES NOT APPLY TO MISDEMEANORS LISTED IN SECTION 16-1-100.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. Section 16-1-20(B) of the 1976 Code, as last amended by Section 2, Act 184 of 1993, is further amended to read:
"(B) For all offenders sentenced on or after July 1, 1993, the minimum term of imprisonment required by law does not apply to the offenses listed in Section Sections 16-1-90 and 16-1-100 unless the offense refers to a mandatory minimum sentence. Offenses listed in Section 16-1-10(C) and (D) are exempt and minimum terms of imprisonment are applicable. No sentence of imprisonment precludes the timely execution of a death sentence."
SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor and applies to all sentences pronounced on or after the effective date of this act.
