Suspension Of Sentencing

Home > Sentencing Guidelines > Sentencing Guidelines Manual Commentary > Suspension Of Sentencing

 Using liability and prevention of offenses as a basis, the sentencing guidelines provide guides on the suspension of sentence, apart from the Guidelines on the type of offense and sentencing periods. Since the legislatures intended that the maximum term to impose suspension of sentence is ‘less than three years of imprisonment (with or without prison labor),’ the Guideline also applies this threshold to types of offenses and sentencing periods when considering suspension of sentence.
