Norman L. Sirak
Case # 3:01CV7436

Old Law and New Law
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.
