Ineligibility for parole, life sentence, etc., for third violent felony. Provides that any person convicted of a third felony involving designated acts of violence against another person (i.e., murder, mob-related felonies, kidnapping and abduction, felony assault and wounding, robbery, felony criminal sexual assault, conspiracy to commit these offenses, and accessories before the fact and principals in the second degree to these offenses), when such offenses are not part of a common act, transaction or scheme, shall, upon conviction of the third offense, be sentenced to life imprisonment and shall not be eligible for parole, probation or any good conduct allowance. Applicable convictions as a juvenile tried as an adult are to be included in determining an offender's total number of violent felonies. If a case subject to these provisions is tried by a jury, the proceeding is to be bifurcated. This is an administration bill.
