Those Who Feel SOMETHING has to Change

I believe that the State of Indiana should remove all time cuts allotted to violent/sex offenders.  Further we request that the Justice system implement TRUTH IN SENTENCING.  TRUTH IN SENTENCING requires offenders to serve a substantial portion 85%-100% of the prison sentence imposed by the court before being eligible for release. The current Indiana policy allows an offender to be released as early as and most often when only 50% of the imposed time has been served or sooner. The reduced the amount of time an offender served on a sentence, such as goodtime, earned-time and parole board release, must be restricted or eliminated.

Signed,

Statistics will prove that most Violent Offenders, particularly those who have commited sexual abuse will REOFFEND.  We currenlty allow these offenders to re-enter society to do just that way to early.  It is a grave injustice to the victims and our communities.
Many times victims who are still in the fog of recovery don't even understand and later feel "duped" by the system after thinking the offender will recieve said number of years and then learning later that the offender didn't even serve half of that time in prison.
