D.C. Council weighs controversial measure that would allow hundreds of inmates to seek release from prison after 15 years of incarceration

Friday, November 27, 2020

The Incarceration Reduction Amendment Act allows inmates to seek early release if they were younger than 18 at the time of their crimes and have spent at least 15 years behind bars. The D.C. Council is set Tuesday to conduct the first of two votes on an amendment that would grow the group of eligible inmates to include those who were as old as 24 when they committed their offenses. The second vote is scheduled for Dec. 15. Learn more about IRAA HERE
