I heard this on our local tv station today. They said it will be in about 18 months. Too bad they didn't do something about this sooner. It would have helped alot.

Review of sentencing guidelines is discussed every year but never really gets off the ground. The legislature as well as the general public doesn't really want to address the sentencing guidelines. At some point they will figure out that eventually all the prisons will be filled with lifers because of the mandatory sentencing laws.

My son was hearing those rumors from the time he went to prison in 2007.

Legal analysts have previously stated that there is nothing to be done for the people sentenced under TIS. Any reform will be going forward only.
