Corr Sent Changes in CT
Gideon’s got the details of what CT’s come up with in its effort to deal with prison and crime problems over the last few months after that heinous triple murder that roiled the state. The state really did do a good job of being outraged but not irrational, the way too many states get, and seems to have avoided a lot of the knee-jerk stuff through some careful discussion before action (imagine that!). Not doing “three strikes” is the first sign that they took what they were doing seriously although it sounds like Gideon has problems with a “home invasion” definition. And kudos to Gideon and “a public defender” for the fine work they’ve done in keeping the rest of us up-to-date on what’s been happening. Shows what good blogs can do.
