Description

Suspension or modification of sentence; transfer to the Department of Corrections. Provides that if a person has been sentenced for a felony to the Department of Corrections (the Department), the court that heard the case, if it appears compatible with the public interest and there are circumstances in mitigation of the offense, may, at any time before the person is transferred to the Department, or within 60 days of such transfer, suspend or otherwise modify the unserved portion of such a sentence. Under current law, the court may only suspend or otherwise modify the unserved portion of such a sentence prior to the transfer of such person to the Department. Read the Bill »
