Prison Time Limited for Level 6 Felony Convictions in Indiana

Persons convicted of a Level 6 felony will not receive prison time for short-term executed sentences under Indiana’s new crime bill. A Level 6 felony carries a sentencing range of six months to 2 ½ years. However, after June 30, 2014, and before July 1, 2015, a court may not sentence a person to the department of corrections if the person’s earliest possible release date is less than 91 days from the date of sentencing. After June 30, 2015, a court may not sentence a person to prison on a Level 6 felony if the person’s earliest possible release date is less than 366 days from sentencing. The restrictions on jail time do not apply to sentences for probation violations or community corrections violations for committing a new crime.
