New Oklahoma Laws In 2016 Part 14 – Prison Sentence Modification Period Extended To 60 Months

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
