Sentencing and release guidelines

The 2020 Sentencing & Release Guidelines are effective March 1st, and determine the presumptive sentence for offenses committed on or after the effective date. The Guidelines remain in effect until the next publication. An individual’s guideline calculations will be based on the version of the sentencing guidelines that govern on the date the individual was sentenced. For more information see pages 11-12 of the Sentencing & Release Guidelines.

After receiving public comment regarding the 2021 Sentencing & Release Guidelines further revisions are necessary. Due to the need to computer program some of the technical aspects of those revisions the 2021 Sentencing & Release Guidelines will not be effective March 1, 2021 but will be made public and effective as soon as possible after March 31. Please contact Monica Diaz if you have questions or concerns.
