Description: Title 12. Code of Criminal Procedure Chapter 55. Sentencing and Probation § 12.55.011. Victim and community involvement in sentencing A court, when considering the sentence to be imposed under this chapter for an offense other than a violation of AS 11.41, AS 11.46.400, or a crime involving domestic violence, may permit the victim and the offender to sub- mit a sentence for the court's review based upon a negotiated agreement between the victim and the offender, or between the offender and the community if there is no victim. The court may, with the consent of the victim and the offender, impose the sentence that has been determined by the negotiated agreement between the offender and the victim, or between the offender and the community if there is no victim, if that sentence otherwise com- plies with this chapter and accomplishes the goals of restoration of the victim and the community and rehabilita- tion of the offender. Before accepting a negotiated agreement, the court shall determine that the victim has not been intimidated or coerced in reaching the agreement. In this section, “community” has the meaning determ- ined by the court. CREDIT(S) SLA 2000, ch. 103, § 2.
