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
- Distributed drugs to a pregnant woman
