    My love one has done 16 years consecutively in North Carolina for nonviolent theft crimes because he had served two times before for same thing never much over 24 mos. for those times and third time received 22 years. This is absurd and makes absolutely no sense at all. He is not a threat to his community I believe he was judged on his family and his juvenile record. How does locking a person away this long for this type of crime really show any type of reform. Actually this can make a person angry and bitter toward a corrupt system. He has written 38 manuscripts and has had a book published. He has paid his price and more. He hasn't raised any of his children. They are all adults or teens now. This is very disturbing and sad.

    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!

    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.
