Summary as introduced:
Hate crimes; penalty. Adds gender and sexual orientation to the categories of victims whose selection for a “hate crime” involving assault or trespass amplifies the Class 1 misdemeanor or Class 6 felony penalty. The penalty includes a six-month sentence, 30 days of which are a mandatory, minimum term. The bill also expands the terroristic act reporting requirements of the State Police, and the availability of specific injunctive relief for acts motivated by hate. The bill adds the words “actual or perceived,” so the offense exists notwithstanding the offender’s mistaken belief about the race, ethnicity, color, gender, sexual orientation or religion of the victim.
