The DC Sentencing Commission has just approved a new "Mitigating Departure Factor" focused on the impact of the invocation of D.C. Code § 11-94 on sentencing in the District. This new departure factor was developed in response to delays resulting from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on court operations and sentencing procedures. The new departure factor becomes effective immediately.



The next Commission meeting will be held virtually on January 18, 2022. Agendas and minutes can be found here.
