Adds gender identity to the list of victim characteristics which should be considered as an enhancement factor in sentencing.
Currently, a person’s criminal sentence can be enhanced if it is determined that the person intentionally committed a crime against another because the victim exhibited one of a number of characteristics. These characteristics include, among others, the victim’s “race, religion, color, disability, sexual orientation, national origin, ancestry or gender.” This bill would add “gender identity” to the list.
