Whats the problem? They don't have enough VIOLENT people to put in prision?? And they are letting locking up drug addicts but letting drug dealers out early... they are part of the problem!!

what can be done to help inmates currently facing these excessive sentences under the habitual felon law. Most of the newer laws do not go into effect until 12/1/11

what can be done to get these excessive sentences changed for inmates that are already in the system? Most of the newer laws go in effect December 1, 2011

Linda that is crazy. my husband got until 2018 for TRYing to steal from walmart to support his family because of his past he couldnt get a job. I know what our inmates have done is wrong but all this time is crazy who do we write to or who do we call to try to help and get this law passed for our people that are serving there time now? I feel like i am losing my mind And to top it all off his lawyer is a big joke. did nothing to help himm at all!!!!!!!!!!!!

My husband was sentenced to 7 to 9 years for having a bag of residue of cocaine. He was also incompetent to stand trial because of a brain injury from a car accident. He was under 24 hour care and they still sent him to prison because he had a record 15 years ago. No justice at all in this country.

Folks that would like to see this law changed need to be the voice for your loved ones. Call often your senators and congressmen and tell them to support a bill to amend the habitual felon law for non violent offenders.

the govenor need's to sign off on the law that was brought before congress on reducing class h and i felonies so these guys will have to pull less time it's crazy to pull seven years for stealing something that only cost 700.00 that's like one year per one hundred dollars

I dont see this law as helping any of the non-violent inmates helping, keeping them caged up like animals is not the anwser. Free the non molesting rapists.

Habitual felon law should be amended for non-violent offenders. Help them get jobs so they can support their families.

Talkn about laws....what about double jeopardy? That's what the habitual law is. Causing a person to do more time for something they have already served for. In this crazy world......

The justice system is screwd up. How do you get more time for drugs than u do for murder, child molestation, and more violent crimes. Putn people in jail for extended periods of time doesnt stop the drug trade. It still continues. Focus on findn the source. The original source.

i have been the victim of a habitual offender... i think this is a just law as a person with the stealing or drug habit usually doesn't get caught for half the stuff they do and they get very aggressive and intimidating. They need to be away from public to protect us in the public population.

im reading from a letterthat after working extremely hard on getting this bill passed during the long session ,that toward the end there was still a lot of work needed to be done and the support needed to pass this bill,just wasnt there.the bill has been pulledfrom the committee it might remain alive and could be presented during the short session which begins may 12,2010.hopefully this will give some time for those who oppose the bill and have concerns to feel more comfortable with it.PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO INTERESTED PARTIES!!!!!REMEMBER MAY 12,2010.

My husband is doing a ridiculous 23 yr sentence for two indictments of simple possession of cocaine.The DA trapped him and gave him a habitual because he was 20 minutes late for court.How ridiculous.The attorney was not even there yet.

Jeanette, I believe the short session will be somewhere in May.

I think they should cut inmates times for nonviolent offenders. My fiance is in prison for 2years for stealing a radio out of target. He made a stupid choice but come on. Just throw him in prison with the rapists, murders, child molesters. WOW!!
