Summary as introduced:
Damaging or destroying farm products. Makes it a crime to maliciously damage or destroy any farm products, including any crops, and requires the court to determine the market value of the products when awarding restitution. The bill provides that a violation is punishable as a Class 6 felony if the value of the product is $400 or more and as a Class 1 misdemeanor if the value is less than $400. Current law makes certain damage or destruction a crime only if the person committing the act knows that the farm products are grown for testing or research purposes in the context of product development in conjunction or coordination with a private research facility, a university, or any federal, state, or local government agency.
