Mandatory Sentence Reductions

Mandatory Sentence Reductions
SB326 reduces the mandatory sentence percentage from 85% to 65% of the sentence. The offences include:
1.  First degree murder as defined in Section 701.7 of this title;
2.  Second degree murder as defined by Section 701.8 of this title;
3.  Manslaughter in the first degree as defined by Section 711 of this title;
4.  Poisoning with intent to kill as defined by Section 651 of this title;
5.  Shooting with intent to kill, use of a vehicle to facilitate use of a firearm, crossbow or other weapon, assault, battery, or assault and battery with a deadly weapon or by other means likely to produce death or great bodily harm, as provided for in Section 652 of this title;
6.  Assault with intent to kill as provided for in Section 653 of this title;
7.  Conjoint robbery as defined by Section 800 of this title;
8.  Robbery with a dangerous weapon as defined in Section 801 of this title;
9.  First degree robbery as defined in Section 797 of this title;
10.  First degree rape as provided for in Section 1115 of this title;
11.  First degree arson as defined in Section 1401 of this title;
12.  First degree burglary as provided for in Section 1436 of this title;
13.  Bombing as defined in Section 1767.1 of this title;
14.  Any crime against a child provided for in Section 843.5 of this title;
15.  Forcible sodomy as defined in Section 888 of this title;
16.  Child pornography as defined in Section 1021.2, 1021.3 or 1024.1 of this title;
17.  Child prostitution as defined in Section 1030 of this title;
18.  Lewd molestation of a child as defined in Section 1123 of this title;
            19.  Abuse of a vulnerable adult as defined in Section 10-103 of Title 43A of the Oklahoma Statutes who is a resident of a nursing facility;
 Therefore, if a person is sentenced to 5 years, they would have to serve 3 ¼ years rather than the 4 ¼ years they would have to serve in prison at this point. This would only affect those sentenced after the law is passed, if that happens. This bill has been referred to Public Safety Committee then to Appropriations Committee.
