Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Unified Code of Corrections. Provides that if a defendant is under 18 years of age at the time of the commission of a felony offense for which the defendant must be sentenced to a period of incarceration, the court shall determine if the defendant should be classified as having diminished culpability based upon the court's consideration of specified mitigating factors. Provides that the defendant shall submit to psychological or other medical evaluations upon request of the State, the results of which shall be admissible solely for the purpose of determining whether the defendant has diminished culpability. Provides that the defendant is permitted to submit his or her own psychological or medical evaluations. Provides that if the court finds that the defendant has diminished culpability, it may sentence the defendant to any authorized disposition for each base offense not otherwise enhanced by any other sentence, except for certain first degree murders. Provides that if the court does not find that the defendant has diminished culpability, it shall sentence the defendant as if the defendant had attained the age of 18 years at the time of the commission of the offense, up to a term of natural life imprisonment, if the court determines that natural life imprisonment is the appropriate sentence based upon the totality of the circumstances.
