S.F. No. 1031 - Extending Permissible Sentence-to-Service Claims of Injury or Death
Author: Senator Jerry Relph
Prepared By: Chris Turner, Senate Fiscal Analyst (651/296-4350)
Date: February 17, 2017


Under current law, the vast majority of sentence-to-service offenders are covered under Minnesota Statutes, section 3.739 (Injury or Death of a Conditionally Released Inmate).  This bill expands the eligibility for claims against the state for injury or death to all persons working in a sentence-to-service capacity, including offenders working to pay any court-ordered statutorily authorized correctional fees.
