Sentencing Guidelines:  Presumptive Type Terms of incarceration to prison or probation  in years determined by a legislatively  created body called a commission and  incorporated into a sentencing guideline.   Those designed to accomplish retribution  and deterrence will determine the type and  length of term based upon the seriousness  of the conviction offense and the offenders'  criminal history.    Those designed to include rehabilitation, as  well as deterrence, will permit consideration  of offender's character and attitude.
