Can felons be forgiven, or should they be penalized permanently?
Your General Assembly continues to increase the number of felony offenses on the statutes. It happens when we are approached by a constituent or special interest group who want to strongly discourage certain behavior. A legislator might respond by introducing a bill that increases a penalty from a misdemeanor/violation to a “Class D” felony. If convicted of a Class D felony, a judge can sentence you for incarceration from one to 5 years.
