Some new legislation for victims as well as inmates
« on: January 09, 2017, 09:07:59 PM »
Peoria Journal Star ran this story today:

The measure, which passed 83-26 and is expected to get a Senate vote on Tuesday, includes recovery services to aid violent crime victims; allows good-time credit off sentences for prisoners who complete rehabilitative courses while incarcerated that are specifically targeted to fix their individual shortcomings; and gives judges added discretion for probation-only sentences in some first-time drug cases.
