Description

At the request of the Juvenile Subcommittee of the Utah Sentencing Commission, a review of sanction consistency with the Juvenile Sentencing Guideline Matrix (Guidelines) was conducted during February 2006. The review conducted was of all sanctions with a hearing date within Fiscal Year 2005, or between July 1, 2004 and June 30, 2005. An effort was made to systematically review inconsistent sentences to determine the accuracy of the SAS program (program) used to find the suggested Guideline sanction, to determine the proportion of projected inconsistent sanctions that were, in fact, consistent, and to discover patterns in sentences that were truly inconsistent with the Guideline recommendation. The analysis only examined sanction consistency falling within the continuum of probation through secure facility
