RE: Rule 32.1, N.D.R.Crim.P., Deferred Imposition of Sentence
Attached are proposed amendments to Rule 32.1. The amendments are form and style amendments in the spirit of the December 2002 federal criminal rule amendments.
Rule 32.1 is not based on Fed.R.Crim.P. 32.1, which deals with revoking or modifying probation. Therefore, revisions to Rule 32.1 are based on the federal court rule drafting guidelines and the North Dakota legislative drafting guidelines rather than on the amendments to Fed.R.Crim.P. 32.1.
The proposed changes are intended to be stylistic only.
