Judges too lax with repeat offenders

8:15 AM EST, January 15, 2013


The woman arrested Wednesday for suspected drug offenses and attempted escape from pursuing officers would not have been on the street if judges had not been so lenient with a repeat offender ("Police chase in Northeast Baltimore ends in Baltimore Co.," Jan. 9).

I propose that judges who continue to release such offenders should serve half of the original sentence when they are brought back in for another criminal act. I am certain that The Sun will agree.
