Ohio Legislature Reduces Felony Sentences

The Ohio Legislature reduces felony sentences for a number of offenses.  After years of increasing and imposing mandatory sentences, the Ohio Legislature has pulled back their efforts in order to focus on treatment and rehabilitation and reduce prison crowding.  One convicted of a fourth or fifth degree felony cannot be sent to prison unless certain criteria are met.  The maximum sentence for many third degree felonies have been reduced from five to three years.
