Mandatory Minimum Repeal Bill 2, Daniel’s Law Amendments Move Ahead

Nicholas Scutari, D-Union, S-3456, follows recommendations of the New Jersey Criminal Sentencing and Disposition Commission and is considered the commission’s blueprint for reform of criminal justice and the reduction of the state’s overcrowded, non-violent prison population.
