This bill provides that the board of trustees of any State or locally-administered pension fund or retirement system will order the forfeiture of all of the earned service credit or pension or other retirement benefit of any member who is convicted of a crime under the laws of this State, or of an offense under the laws of another state or the United States which would have been a crime under the laws of this State, for misconduct occurring during the member's service in an elective or appointive public office or position which involves or touches the office or position and renders the service dishonorable. Current law provides for the full forfeiture of all of the pension or retirement benefits earned from the retirement system in which an elected or appointed official, or any employee, convicted of certain crimes involving or touching the office or employment participated at the time of the commission of the offense and which covered the office involved in the offense. It also authorizes a board of trustees of a pension system to order the full or partial forfeiture of the pension of any member for any kind of misconduct which renders the public service dishonorable. The board considers 11 factors in its evaluation of the public service.
