Petition Closed

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.
