Robach Sponsored Legislation to Limit Parole Eligibility for Violent Felons Approved in State Senate

Earlier this week, the State Senate passed legislation that I sponsored that would require violent felons to complete 80% of their sentence to be considered for early release. Too often these criminals are released to the public too soon and go on to commit additional violent crimes. This legislation will ensure the safety of our neighborhoods and make certain that these felons are completing their rehabilitation in a secure setting.
