Changing Criminal Laws

by

The Indiana Senate has approved a major overhaul of Indiana's criminal sentencing laws aimed at sending fewer non-violent offenders to prison.

The Senate voted 46-4 in favor of the bill Wednesday. It now goes back to the House, which earlier approved a different version. Supporters hope changes to sentencing laws will direct more people convicted of low-level felonies to work release and other local programs while more violent offender s will spend more time in jail.

If the proposal makes it into law it would not take effect until July 2014.
