Indiana Senator Jim Merritt

Indiana State Senator Jim Merritt plans to introduce legislation that would make serving time mandatory for people who use a firearm while committing a violent crime.

The new law would strengthen penalties against violent offenders.

Under the current state law, judges may sentence a violent offender using a firearm of up to 5 years in prison.  Merritt’s legislation would place a mandatory sentence on these criminals to 20 years in prison.
