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.
