This is one of a number of election reform stories that have hit the wires of late:
I know many are taking this on from a rights perspective, but I wonder if there is an additional task. For those who work on these issues, is there any evidence that shows that five years is a reasonable time to evaluate a felon’s probability of recidivism, or in the words of Attorney General Beal’s: “rehabilitation and commitment to a crime-free life”?
I’m also wondering why the Executive Clemency Board has jurisdiction over this issue?
