Felony Committed While on Bail or Own Recognizance (OR)?

If one is out of custody on bail or own recognizance (OR) release and commits a felony, Penal Code § 12022.1 mandates a two-year consecutive (not concurrent) sentence enhancement for that felony. The two-year enhancement, consecutive to the sentence on the felony, is then consecutive to the sentence on the matter the individual posted bail for or was released OR from custody for. This is because the three offenses are regarded as taking place at separate times.
