A panel that looked at sentencing reform this month was advised that if judges and prosecutors seek lengthy prison terms, Indiana's prison population won't drop.
When Indiana Gov. Mike Pence signed the new criminal code bill (HEA 1006) and the expungement bill (HEA 1482), he said he wanted Indiana "to be the worst place in America to commit a serious crime and the best place, once you've done your time, to get a second chance."
Indiana's criminal code, no less than any other mechanism, requires periodic maintenance.
If you think sentencing reform is all about making the punishment fit the crime, you're not quite right. It's about making sure the criminal changes bad behavior, too.
