My fiance was sentenced to mandatory 5-10 years. And he was a first time offender, for a non violent crime. They didn’t care if he had never been in trouble with the law before, they didn’t take it into consideration. My kids have been affected deeply by his long sentence and even though he has already done 4 years and has 1 more to go for his minimum I still hope that the laws are changed. Something needs to be done with the over incarceration that is happening in the US.
