346

Criminal Justice

Mandatory minimums take away judicial discretion forcing judges to impose harsh sentences even if the crime doesn’t deserve one. As originally constructed, these bills would have given back that judicial discretion for certain offenses allowing judges to look at each case on its own merits. While the Senate passed SB 346 after a heavy amendment process, it did not receive a House vote.
