Agenda Item
Adult Guideline Overview
One of the main statutory duties of the Sentencing Commission is to provide uniformity in sentencing and release guidelines. Utah’s sentencing and release guidelines were implemented in 1985. While the guidelines are voluntary, the Commission strongly recommends they be followed. The guidelines are descriptive as possible, versus prescriptive. Our placement matrix and release matrix are combined. All felony convictions and class A misdemeanor sex offenses are included on the guidelines and help assist AP&P in making recommendations to the judge. The guidelines also assist the judge in sentencing and the Board of Pardons and Parole in release decisions. Reasons for departure from the guidelines should be justified. Sentencing enhancements are generally not considered by the guidelines. Jacey reviewed the guidelines matrix, criminal history assessment and other forms included in the guidelines.

Agenda Item 2010 Sentencing Guidelines

Jacey asked the Commission to review the guidelines. Changes appear in italics and are underlined.
Discussion centered on the sentencing numbers as they appear on the crime category chart on page
11 and if there needs to be a column added between A and B because of the new crime categories
(Child Abuse Homicide and Child Endangerment that results in a death). There is not a lot of data to
support the numbers and perhaps they should be updated. Paul Boyden suggested that the shading of
those columns is important, whereas the numbers are not helpful at all.
Curt Garner made the motion to form a subcommittee to study the options and make some
recommendations. Paul Boyden seconded the motion which passed unanimously. Curt will serve as
Chair on the committee and the following volunteered to participate: Mike Haddon, Paul Boyden,
Patrick Anderson, David Brickey and Ben Peterson. The subcommittee may also discuss adding
kidnapping to the sex offender matrix, (Form 3, page 14).
Curt Garner made the motion to categorize Habitual wanton destruction of wildlife, which creates a 3rd
degree felony, as “other”, and to add Animal Cruelty which created a 3rd degree felony to the guideline
and categorize as “other”. Benjamin McMurray seconded the motion which passed unanimously.

Agenda Item
Review of Juvenile Sentencing Guidelines
The Juvenile Guidelines are used regularly, but have not been reviewed for many years. Judge
Oddone made the motion that the Juvenile Subcommittee review the Juvenile Sentencing Guidelines
yearly. Judge Van Dyke seconded the motion, which passed unanimously.

Agenda Item
2009 Sentencing and Length of Stay Statistics
Cliff Butter presented statistics on the following: Felony sentencing to prison and probation Growth in the overall population Who is coming and going into prison, by offense type and degree level Length of Stay Recidivism Utah has the lowest incarceration rate out of the Western states and is the seventh lowest nationally. While our Crime Index is steady, our incarceration rates have increased. This is partly due to legislation and the ratcheting up of offense penalties.
Agenda Item
Jail as a Condition of Probation Guidelines
Jacey reviewed a draft of the instructions for Form 5 – Jail as a Condition of Probation and when
approved will become part of the sentencing guidelines booklet. The document has a matrix on the
opposite side, which will coincide with our general matrix and is intended to be used for someone who
is not given a prison sentence. This matrix defines the conditions of their probation. Jacey anticipates
that this matrix will be used by AP&P in making their recommendation to the court. Curt Garner made
the motion to adopt this document for inclusion to the Sentencing Guidelines booklet. Sy Snarr
seconded the motion which passed unanimously.

Agenda Item

Mary Lou Emerson from CCJJ presented the Utah DUI Sentencing Matrix which is frequently used by
Justice Court Judges. David Brickey made the motion to adopt the DUI Matrix and post it on our
