Tougher Drug Laws Could Come From State Legislature

by
Indiana State House
Indiana State House

Tougher marijuana possession and dealing penalties could be added to a proposed overhaul of Indiana's criminal sentencing laws by legislators after Gov. Mike Pence questioned whether the plan was strict enough on low-level drug offenders. The proposal aims to direct more people convicted of low-level felonies to work release and other local programs rather than sending them to prison. It also would require those convicted of the most serious crimes to spend more time in prison. The House approved the bill by a wide margin last month with support from many of the chamber's most conservative and most liberal members. Provisions of the plan include dropping the state's current four-tier system of felonies and replace it with a six-tier system and requiring that felons serve at least 75 percent of their sentences, up from the 50 percent or less.
