Community Support for New Hampshire House Bill 138 and House Bill 598

This petition had 2,806 supporters

Please sign our petition to show support! The New Hampshire House of Representatives House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee has proposed two House Bills (HB138-FN and HB598) and we are seeking the support of the public to present to the members. House Bill 138-FN allows for prisoners serving life sentences to be eligible for parole after 25 years. House Bill 598 is relative to the portion of a minimum sentence to be served to be eligible for parole. The passing of these bills would allow a prisoner who showed rehabilitation a chance at a meaningful life.

These house bills (HB138-FN and HB598) are not just dealing with wrongful convictions and over sentencing but are also looking at the high cost (tax money) of sending medical specialists into our prisons to care for elderly inmates. Additionally, inmates need to show rehabilitation and growth in order to be granted parole, so the passing of these house bills is not a timeline for release, rather a timeline to provide opportunities for growth and change in order for these men and women to become productive members of society. By supporting these house bills, it is supporting the idea that people can rehabilitate, grow and learn from their mistakes. 

Thank you
