Drug Convictons get more time than Molesters!

    1. Petition by

      Nikkita Dixon

      Indianapolis, IN

This is important because currently any amount over 3 grams of a controlled substance can get a person a convicton of 20 to 50 years in prison in Indiana. This same amount in states like Texas can carry 20 yrs. max, Wisconsin 12.5 yrs. max, and Ohio probation to 1 year jail. A molester won't even get half of that in Indiana and he/she is taking innocence from a person that's not asking to be violated!  The laws of Indiana need to be revised because they haven't been since 1976, if they aren't changed by 2014 there will be over 30,000 inmates in Indiana prison system.

      The fact that child predators spend less time imprisoned than drug abusers is an American travesty.

      Furthermore, it is deplorable that this fact remains at large and that we the people and our governing systems are allowing this. It is genuinely vile.

      It takes $21k a year to support Indiana inmates. Gov. Mitch Daniels and them say they will save the taxpayers $7 million by cutting out education in the prisons, but they didn't say that it will cost $15,284,740.00 by making that decision because those inmates will not get the time cuts associated with becoming educated! Education helps recidivism.
