BILL NUMBER:S943 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the penal law, in relation to criminally negligent homicide PURPOSE: This bill would make criminally negligent homicide a class D felony. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 125.10 of the penal law is amended to increase the crime of criminally negligent homicide from a class E felony offense to a class D felony offense. JUSTIFICATION: Judges have expressed the view, during sentencing and after, that the sentence which could be imposed under the limits of the criminally negligent homicide statute, often do not fit the seriousness of the crime committed. First degree manslaughter is a class B felony and second degree manslaughter is a class C felony. Logically, the next successive or immediate lesser offense of criminally negligent homicide should be a class D felony. However, under current State penal law, criminally negligent homicide is actually a class E felony.
