Sentencing Order NIEM 2_0
Web Site Link:
A Sentencing Order is a legal document issued by a judicial official imposing specific penalties and obligations upon a subject (a/k/a defendant) as a result of the subject's pleading guilty (or no contest) or, following a jury or bench trial, a verdict of guilty on criminal charges. Although there could be significant variation among states, localities, and tribes, a Sentencing Order is typically intended to be the final judgment following a criminal conviction. Depending upon the nature of the criminal charges and penalties and obligations imposed, a court's Sentencing Order could be transmitted to numerous justice partners, such as corrections, state and federal records repositories, victim services agencies, probation or parole agencies, and others. The scope of the IEPD includes the original Sentencing Order and any subsequent amendments.
