Arizona’s sentencing loophole a growing problem

Twenty-five years ago, a truth in sentencing law went into effect in Arizona that eliminated parole.

However since then, parole has been offered to hundreds of people through plea deals and in trials. The legislature partially addressed the issue but the solution does not include those promised parole through a trial.

Hear about Arizona’s parole problem from Kurt Altman — a former prosecutor, current defense attorney and lobbyist for Right on Crime, a group with a conservative approach on criminal justice — and Robert Dormady, an instructor in the Arizona State University’s Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law.
