Basic Felony Sentencing – Fresno


IMPORTANT: Due to many counties limiting travel to necessary activities, CPOC is suspending this training. We will be reassessing how best to get the most critical trainings back on the calendar including but not limited to rescheduling or online opportunities where appropriate. 

Basic Felony Sentencing course will provide an overview of the fundamentals of felony sentencing to state prison and under Penal Code, § 1170(h). The course will explore the power of evidence-based sentencing; the probation sentence; basic rules of sentencing of single and multiple count cases; the strategies of sentencing after realignment; an introduction to the calculation of custody credits; victim restitution; and the disposition of violations of supervision and the application of People v. Leiva. The class would be taught with a combination of lecture, PowerPoint, hypothetical case problems and written text materials.
