The Act provides enhanced sentences in cases in which the trier of fact determines that the defendant intentionally selected a victim or property as the object of an offense because of bias or prejudice. The Act requires the state to provide the defendant written notice of its intention to seek enhanced penalties, alleging the specific factors that justify an enhanced sentence. Such notice must be provided after indictment, but not later than arraignment.
