Description

On August 2, 2012, Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick signed into law new legislation: Chapter 192 of the Acts of 2012 (“Chapter 192”), colloquially known as the Governor’s Crime Bill. The central aim of this legislation was to reduce the number of non-violent drug offenders incarcerated by reducing the lengthy mandatory minimum sentences for low-level drug offenders while concurrently implementing more punitive sentencing practices for habitual high-risk violent offenders.
