DSL Update (Advanced), 8 hours
This course covers vital updated and advanced DSL material probation officers need in order to determine probation eligibility and correctly calculate maximum prison or jail exposure in more complicated multi-count cases. Participants receive hands-on experience in the application of factors in aggravation and mitigation, enhancements, consecutive sentencing, priors, aggregate terms, three strikes, sex crimes and the impact of AB 109 on DSL. Through 2016, a frequently updated resource, The Felony Sentencing Script is offered digitally for free from Jack Ryan, our instructor. This resource is robust, accurate, and a treasure to have available.
