Commonwealth’s Attorney Jim Plowman Appointed by Virginia House of Delegates to the Virginia Criminal Sentencing Commission

LEESBURG, VA – July 14, 2016. Loudoun County Commonwealth’s Attorney, Jim Plowman, was appointed by the Virginia House of Delegates to serve on Virginia’s Criminal Sentencing Commission.

The Virginia Criminal Sentencing Commission is a judicial branch agency established by the Code of Virginia, which is tasked with developing, implementing, and administering felony sentencing guidelines used in circuit courts throughout the Commonwealth. Sentencing guidelines, which are discretionary, provide circuit court judges with a range of recommended sentencing options. The Commission also provides trainings and conducts criminal justice research on such subjects such as offender risk assessment, recidivism, and violations of probation. Analyses to assess the fiscal impact of proposed criminal justice legislation are also performed by the Commission.

The Virginia Criminal Sentencing Commission is comprised of 17 members who are appointed by the Chief Justice, the Governor, and the General Assembly. Plowman was appointed to the Commission for a four-year term.

Plowman has nearly twenty years as a practicing attorney handling both civil and criminal litigation.
