Rs 14:110.1 Jumping Bail

§110.1. Jumping bail

A. Jumping bail is the intentional failure to appear at the date, time, and place as ordered by the court before which the defendant's case is pending. If the state proves notice has been given to the defendant as set forth in Code of Criminal Procedure Articles 322 and 344, a rebuttable presumption of notice shall apply, and the burden of proof shifts to the defendant to show that he did not receive notice. The fact that no loss shall result to any surety or bondsman is immaterial.

B. Whoever commits the crime of jumping bail when the bail is to assure the presence of the defendant for those cases defined as misdemeanors in this Title and in the Uniform Controlled Dangerous Substances Law shall be imprisoned for not more than six months, or fined not more than five hundred dollars, or both.

C. Whoever commits the crime of jumping bail when the bail is to assure the presence of the defendant for those cases defined as felonies in this Title and in the Uniform Controlled Dangerous Substances Law shall be imprisoned at hard labor for not more than two years.

Added by Acts 1950, No. 385, §1. Amended by Acts 1982, No. 523, §1; Acts 1993, No. 501, §1; Acts 2008, No. 54, §1.
