What Are Brimage Guidelines?
The Brimage Guidelines establish mandatory prison sentences for certain
drug offenders, and also make these individuals ineligible for parole
for extended periods of time. In other words, a defendant
must serve a pre-determined amount of time in prison before they are eligible
for parole. These penalties are extremely severe, and can have a devastating
impact on both your present and future.
Brimage guidelines may apply if you:
- Are a repeat drug offender
- Committed a drug offense in a school zone
- Distributed drugs to a minor
