Massachusetts state senators push criminal justice reform
from Waltham News Tribune
State senators recently laid out a multifaceted criminal justice reform agenda, pitching legislation that would eliminate mandatory minimum sentences for non-violent drug offenders, limit the use of cash bail and give police officers discretion to issue civil citations instead of criminal charges for certain misdemeanors. A group of 10 Senate Democrats who have all filed bills proposing changes to the state's justice system said momentum is building behind the issue and expressed optimism that some of their ideas will make it into law.
