Current law also provides that when a court imposes an indeterminate felony sentence on a person with at least one prior felony conviction, five years must be added to the maximum term of imprisonment. This bill adds the requirement that when an indeterminate felony sentence is imposed on a person with at least one prior felony conviction, four years must be added to the minimum term of imprisonment .
