Sentence Modifiers

Sentencing modifiers are statutes that aid in defining the punishment for the underlying offense. Modifiers can affect either or both the duration and the disposition of the presumptive sentence. Any change to the presumptive fixed sentence must also be applied to the upper and lower ends of the sentencing range, except that the presumptive sentence cannot be less than one year and one day, nor can it be less than any applicable mandatory minimum. More information on sentence modifiers and official language can be found in section 2.G of the Guidelines.
