The State of Arizona follows the mandatory sentencing guidelines when it comes to felony convictions. This means that when determining a sentence, the Judge will look at certain factors to see what range the crime falls into.

The law for all first time non-dangerous offenses can be found at A.R.S. 13-702, 13-902.
