NA Special Class of Fleeing Felons
 
(01/01/21 - 12/31/21)
Due to a change in law, participants who have certain felony convictions and are not in compliance with the terms of their probation or parole make up a special class of fleeing felons. When the participant states they have one of the felony convictions listed below, and that they are not in compliance with the terms of their probation or parole, no other verification is needed. For NA, disqualify the participant and document the case file.
 
The special class of fleeing felons includes any participant convicted as an adult of one of the following felony offenses on or after February 08, 2014:
 
Aggravated sexual abuse (by force or threat of another person, to include rendering that person unconscious or by administering a drug, intoxicant, or other similar substance, and then engages in a sexual act). This includes anyone who crosses a state line with the intent to engage in a sexual act with a minor.
Murder.
A Federal or State offense involving sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking as defined in section 40002(a) of the Violence Against Women Act of 1994.
An offense under State law determined by the Attorney General to be equal to an offense described above.
 
When the disqualified participant is the only HH member, key PRAP with the appropriate Participant Disqualification Alert Code and deny the case using the FF Denial Closure Reason Code.
