RE: Rule 32, N.D.R.Crim.P., Sentencing and Judgment
Attached are proposed amendments to Rule 32. The amendments are form and style amendments in the spirit of the December 2002 federal criminal rule amendments.
Rule 32 deals with the same topic as the federal rule, but it contains a significant amount of material that is different than the federal rule. Therefore, revisions to Rule 32 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.
The proposed changes are intended to be stylistic only.
