In the recently-completed legislative session, the General Assembly passed several new laws regarding sentencing, corrections, and similar subjects. Frequent blog contributor and School of Government faculty member Jamie Markham has just finished a summary of that legislation. His excellent summary is available, hot off the presses, here.
Highlights include Jamie’s analysis of the DNA-collection law; his treatment of changes to the sex offender laws; and his summary of the significant changes to the laws regarding felons’ possession of firearms. It’s well worth taking a few minutes to read it.
