House Bill 4 (Enrolled Act 4) relates to a 90-day time limit for competency evaluations. Hunt said cur- rently there is no time limit for a person to be evaluated for competency to stand tri- al. The 90-day limit will put pressure on the state hospi- tal, she said. The legislation will help move cases that require an evaluation for- ward in a timely manner. HB13 (EA6) relates to underage drinking and ac- cording to LSO summary "creates and expands of- fenses for persons under age 21 who attempt to gain admittance to liquor dis- pensing rooms or drive-in liquor areas. The bill also distin- guishes between possession, purchase and solicitation to purchase an alcoholic bev- erage or malt liquor. Sen. Gerald Gels (R- Worland) voted against the bill because it provides for an exception for posses- sion or consumption by mi- nors who are in the physical presence of a parent, spouse or legal guardian who is 21 or older. It also provides for an exception for participa- tion in religious services and for medicinal purposes. Hunt said the changes are minor compared to what is currently on the books. HB132 (HEA45) pro- vides a sentence enhance- ment for homicide of a preg- nant woman. The penalty for second-degree murder increases from not less than 20 years to not less than 40 years. The sentence en- hancement for manslaugh- ter or "drug-induced homi- cide" is a term of 10 to 30 years, compared to the cur- rent term of not more than 20 years with no minimum sentence. i The Big Horn County Sheriffs De- fire in Deaver.
