Sentencing Summary Chart

Judge Michael Mullins of the Iowa Court of Appeals has constructed a sentencing chart that shows the potential penalties, including fines, fees, surcharges, and terms of incarceration, that apply to violations of Iowa's criminal laws. The information the chart is abbreviated and is designed only to serve as a guide. It is not a complete statement of every crime and penalty, and attorneys should conduct independent research rather than relying solely on this chart.


There is no sentencing chart for 2016 or after.
