DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL


Reduction or suspension of sentences. Provides that if a person is convicted after June 30, 2011, at the time the person is sentenced, the court that sentences the person may set a date after which the court may conduct at least one hearing: (1) to consider modifying the person's sentence; (2) that is held after the date the convicted person begins serving the person's sentence; (3) at which the convicted person is present; and (4) of which the prosecuting attorney has been notified. Allows the court to reduce or suspend the person's sentence after the hearing. (Current law allows a court to reduce or suspend a convicted person's sentence after a hearing is held: (1) if not more than 365 days have passed since the person began serving the person's sentence; or (2) if more than 365 days have passed since the person began serving the person's sentence, only with the approval of the prosecuting attorney or if the person is placed in a community corrections program.)
