Pennsylvania's probation system is in desperate need of reform.
With this deeply broken system, some might argue that something is better than nothing when it comes to probation reform in Pennsylvania. But when that something makes the system worse, such "reforms" must be voted down.
That's why we're urging state reps to oppose S.B.913.
Any meaningful probation reform must include a cap on the amount of time a person can be sentenced to probation. Pennsylvania is one of just a handful of states that fail to impose caps on probation sentences. S.B.913 does not include such a limit on probation terms.
The proposed law would also allow judges to keep people on probation indefinitely because of an inability to pay restitution.
Tell your state rep to vote 'no' on S.B.913.
