§110.1.1.  Out-of-state bail jumping

A.  Out-of-state bail jumping is the intentional failure to appear, by leaving the state to avoid appearing in court, 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.

B.  Whoever commits the crime of out-of-state bail jumping, when the bail is to assure the presence of the defendant for those cases defined as misdemeanors and felonies in this Title and in the Uniform Controlled Dangerous Substances Law shall be fined two thousand dollars and imprisoned at hard labor for not less than one year nor more than three years.
