“This is huge day, certainly thrilled that this received such bi-partisan support,” Rep. Kristin Boggs, D – District 18 one of the primary sponsors of the bill.
House Bill 365 would dramatically change how violent felons are sentenced to prison and how they are watched once they are released.
The legislation followed a series of 10 Investigates reports that exposed failures of the state’s parole system to closely track Golsby and others.
