Serve 65% of time in prison instead of 85% for non-violent crimes

Messages Sent So Far
Change the law for non-violent offenders to serve 65% of their time instead of 85%. Too much time is being giving to non-violent offenders. Most get more time than the person that killed, raped, molested, etc and it's not fair.. Fairness for everyone is all I'm seeking regardless of who you are. The law that's in effect now targets certain people.

I believe this should pass due to non violent prisoners serving more time than prisoner who rape and molest children and adults, it's not right!

I am convicted for only 32000 USD worth of parts sold to a "SDN", now I plead to 24 months , that is to much time, I have Clean record and never done any kind of crime my entire life, Save us, Help Us at the same Time Exxon Mobile makes a deal for 1 Billion US and they only get 2 Million to pay, this is not a fair

Please reduce the 85% to 65% for people that was wrongfully accused. My son pleaded guilty and sentenced to 14 years and they didn't get any drugs off of him. They had him thinking he would get 25 years if convicted.

Please reduce the truth in sentencing to 65%. My man does not deserve the time he is getting after paying his dues on probation, successfully completing drug treatment the first-time no relapses and restitution to his victim. I don't get why they throw the book at people for not completing counseling...Please lower the time served to 65%

Those who are non violent should get 65% and not 85%. Many have already paid the consequences and have educated themsekves to be better man an woman in society.

I totally agree 85% is too much. We need prison reform to 65% now. All county and state jails are overcrowded and costing tax payers millions

Each case should be assessed for violent or non-violent crime status. Sentences have become too harsh. Period. They are not fair and some are handed out based on prejudices and racism.
