Restraint of pregnant inmates; pregnancy from certain sex offenses.

Abstract

Provides that a correctional facility, including a jail, shall: (1) use the least restrictive restraints necessary on a pregnant inmate when the pregnant inmate is in the second or third trimester of pregnancy; or (2) use no restraints on a pregnant inmate who is in labor, delivering a baby, during the immediate postdelivery period, or dealing with a medical emergency related to the pregnancy, with certain exceptions. Repeals the current statute concerning prenatal and postnatal care and treatment and incorporates it into the new chapter concerning pregnant inmates. Adds sexual misconduct with a service provider as a Level 4 felony to the definition of "violent offense", and requires a person convicted of: (1) sexual misconduct with a service provider; (2) child molesting; and (3) rape; to pay restitution for pregnancy and childbirth expenses to the victim if the pregnancy is a result of the offense.
