Increase prison time

Child abuse should not be a memory for a family or child. Unfortunately, Maryland does not value the life of a child like that of an adult and the MAXIMUM amount of time a convicted child killer can serve is 30 years. Furthermore, these inmates are only required to serve 50% of their sentence, so even if they receive the maximum they can be back on the streets in 15 years, and this needs to change! The maximum sentence needs to be harsher! If the victim dies, LIFE should be automatic,NO PAROLE! If the victim survives with disabilities, 60-75+ years, no parole while incarcerated, 15 years of supervised probation, If the victim survives with no disabilities, 60-70 years, no parole while incarcerated, 10-14 years of probation. MARYLAND WAKE UP!!! LISTEN TO YOUR CITIZENS!!!
