Sentencing ranges

September 10, 2016

Not too long ago, Indiana changed the classification of felonies from letters to numbers.  For example, what used to be a Class D felony is now close to what is now a Level 6 felony.  When the classification (from letter to number) changed, so too did the sentencing ranges.  Here is the current structure of what a conviction for a criminal charge faces in the State of Indiana:

 

Felony / Misdemeanor level                    Sentencing range

 

Class C Misdemeanor                                 0 days to 60 days 

Class B Misdemeanor                                 0 days to 180 days

Class A Misdemeanor                                 0 days to 1 year

Level 6 Felony                                              6 months to 2.5 years with 1 year as the advisory sentence

Level 5 Felony                                               1 year to 6 years with an advisory sentence of 3 years 

Level 4 Felony                                              2 years to 12 years with an advisory sentence of 6 years  

Level 3 Felony                                              3 years to 16 years with an advisory sentence of 9 years

Level 2 Felony                                              10 years to 30 years with an advisory sentence of 17.5 years

Level 1 Felony                                              20 years to 40 years with an advisory sentence of 30 years

Murder                                                         45 years to 65 years with an advisory sentence of 55 years
