If this law is not changed many people will be spending more time waiting to be sentenced than the actual sentence they face. Losing the opportunity to rehabilitate within the community as contributing citizens. The criminal justice systems should eliminate mandatory minimum sentences and determine the criminal sentence based on circumstance, modern existing occurrences, and assessed harm to the community. Every individual's circumstances are unique therefore the punishments received should be determined by the specifics such as criminal records, community contributions or damages, and discontinued criminal activity. Sign this Petition for individuals to be treated as a person and not an offense.
