2C:35-7a - Review of sentence by court

2C:35-7a  Review of sentence by court.
2.Notwithstanding any court rule limiting the time period within which a motion to reduce or change a sentence may be filed, any person who, on the effective date of this act, is serving a mandatory minimum sentence as provided by section 1 of P.L.1987, c.101 (C.2C:35-7) and who has not had his sentence suspended or been paroled or discharged may move to have his sentence reviewed by the court.  If the court finds that the sentence under review does not serve the interests of justice, the judge may re-sentence the defendant pursuant to subsection b. of section 1 of P.L.1987, c.101 (C.2C:35-7).  In determining whether the sentence under review serves the interests of justice, the court shall consider all relevant circumstances, including whether the defendant pleaded guilty pursuant to a negotiated agreement, and whether the prosecution has agreed to dismiss one or more charges which, upon conviction, would have subjected the defendant to the presumption of imprisonment under subsection d. of N.J.S.2C:44-1.  The determination by the court shall not be subject to appeal.

L.2009, c.192, s.2.
