LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1245, as introduced, Cooley. Sentencing.
Existing law requires the Judicial Council to seek uniformity in sentencing by the adoption of rules providing criteria for the consideration of the trial judge at the time of sentencing. Existing law also requires the Judicial Council to collect and analyze relevant information relating to sentencing practices in this state and other jurisdictions and to take that information into consideration in adopting those rules.
This bill would make technical, nonsubstantive changes to that requirement.
