Major sentencing changes for F-1 and F-2 offenses took effect in March 2019. SB 201 “The Reagan Tokes Law” dramatically changes sentencing procedures for all non-life felonies of the first and second degree. SB 231 “Sierah’s Law” creates a statewide Violent Offender Database with a duty of enrollment in that database for offenders convicted of specified violent offenses. Practitioners need to be aware of these changes in order to avoid confusion, delay, or errors in sentencing these serious offenses.
This presentation by Sentencing Commission staff will include a breakdown of the new indefinite sentencing scheme and advisements judges must relay to offenders during plea hearings and at sentencing.
