Previously, a prison sentence could be modified within 24 months of being imposed. HB 2443 amends 22 OS § 982a to allow sentences to be modified within 60 months.
The sentencing court can now modify a sentence within 60 months after any of the following:
- the initial sentence
- revocation of suspended sentence
- an original sentence to Drug Offender Work Camp (DOWC)
- after receipt by the trial court clerk of the mandate affirming conviction and sentence on appeal
