|The Old Law represents the
sentencing statutes by trial courts before July 1, 1996, where a sentence
was indeterminate, such as 15-25 years, representing the minimum and maximum
time served for the crime, and where the Parole Board would determine any
time beyond the minimum. The New Law, instituted by SB 2 in 1996, gives
only specific actual sentences for convictions, without being subjected
to Parole Board review.
The New Law specifically applies to crimes committed after July 1, 1996.
