What is IC 35-44.1-3-9?

IC 35-44.1-3-9 is a statute within Indiana's criminal code that addresses the criminal violation of a lifetime parole condition. In this context, lifetime parole refers to parole supervision for individuals convicted of certain offenses, particularly those with a history of serious criminal behavior. The statute outlines the actions that can lead to a criminal violation of a lifetime parole condition:

  1. Violation of Parole Conditions: If a person knowingly or intentionally violates any condition of their lifetime parole, including any special conditions imposed by the parole board.

  2. Unauthorized Contact: If a person, without authorization from the parole board, has direct or indirect contact with:

    • A child less than sixteen (16) years of age.

    • The victim of a sex offense committed by the person.

Legal Consequences

A violation of IC 35-44.1-3-9 is considered a Level 6 felony. However, the offense can escalate to a Level 5 felony if the individual has a prior unrelated conviction under this section. It's essential to understand the severity of these charges, as they can have a significant impact on your life.
