This is REALLY going to HURT!. How might you be punished in our system?. Probation Parole (Crimes committed before Dec. 31, 1999) Jail/Prison Fines Death. What is the purpose of punishment?…. Retribution. Sometimes society wants revenge against those who break the law. Retribution (cont).
Offenders that committed crimes after December 31, 1999 are no longer eligible for parole (early release for good behavior).
Under the Truth in Sentencing guidelines, inmates must serve their entire sentence. NO PAROLE!!!
“I believe very strongly in truth in sentencing. The victim knows how many years the person is going to get. The defendant knows…Truth in sentencing is a lot better than un-truth in sentencing.”
Governor Jim Doyle
However, in 2009 the law was changed to allow early release for NON-violent offenders.
