McCreadie makes amendments to "2 Strikes" bill

Posted: Updated:

 


GUAM - Keeping with public hearings from Thursday, senator Brant McCreadie has made several amendments to his two strikes bill in an attempt to find a more balanced approach at instituting the two strikes provision. McCreadie says he has removed several of the offenses listed in the Bill 107 -- from 25 down to 14. Some of the offenses no longer listed include negligent burning, burglary, terroristic conduct, rioting and sexual conduct in the third degree. McCreadie says he removed some of the offenses based on input from the Attorney General's Office along with those who testified, and so that the punishment set in the bill is commensurate with the offenses.
Bill 107 would institute a two strikes provision for habitual offenders and would keep our violent repeat offenders out of the community and inside of prison.
