Mandatory National Sentencing Laws
It is not common knowledge that every state has different sentencing laws for crimes. For example, if convicted of second degree murder:
Arizona one would be sentenced to no less than 10 but no more than 11 years,
Arkansas 5-20 years
Florida minimum 10 years
Georgia 10-30 years, and finally
Louisiana has an automatic sentence of LIFE WITHOUT PAROLE regardless of ones criminal history.
The crime committed should determine a sentence, not ones geographical location. If a person commits this crime in Arizona why is this persons ability to be rehabilitated stronger than someone in Louisiana who will serve a life sentence without ever recieving the possibility of returning to the free world. Please help me raise awareness regarding this troubling issue that our county faces. If we are one nation, under God, sentencing should be uniform across the board. I appreciate your help in advance to educate as many people as possible. Thank you for your time.
