Greetings!

Though temperatures are still approaching 100 degrees, we are seeing signs of fall around us. Labor Day is here. The kids are headed back to school. And, football season is about to begin (Go Eagles!).

As fall session nears in Harrisburg, I remain focused on advancing issues impacting our communities throughout the 8th Senatorial District. My best to you and yours as we continue our work toward a better community.

Probation Reform

Senator Anthony H. WilliamsReforming our criminal justice system remains one of my top priorities as fall session begins. I am eager to build on the momentum we established when our landmark Clean Slate legislation became law.

Pennsylvania’s probation system is broken. Far too many of us live under the perpetual strain of government supervision due to Pennsylvania’s outdated and ineffective probation laws. Nearly 300,000 Pennsylvanians are currently under government supervision. This is simply not sustainable.

I’ve introduced legislation to reform probation in the following ways:

  • Limit the length of probation sentences (3 years for misdemeanors, 5 years for felonies);
  • Limit jailtime if probation is revoked;
  • Incentivize good behavior to further reduce probation sentences; and
  • Require the PA Sentencing Commission to adopt proportional, mandatory alternatives to jailtime for minor probation violations.

I am asking for your support for probation reform so we can continue to bring increased fairness to our criminal justice system. No one should be on probation forever.
