I wonder if it would be possible to implement something like a credit report for criminals. From the time you leave jail or pay your punishment this record starts..Stay trouble free and crime free for 2-3 years, 5 years whatever term makes sense then the crime is gone from your report.
Obviously their are details in there but I am all in favor of people having a chance once they have paid their time.
Where I have no sympathy is a repeat. k
I saw someone on TV complaining they lost their license for good because they had 3 DUIs on their record. In my opinion a person like that should lose the right to drive forever.
Everyone makes a mistake once but multiple times really don't warrant multiple chances.

I call behavior as I see it. You earned your punishment and whatever you lost.
Decent people don't spit on others no matter who they are.

Say what you will.... I get that sentencing and punishment are all hosed up in this country. But forgive me if I remain unimpressed by someone who was convicted of a violent crime and only three years later whines about the consequences.
I have never violently attacked anyone in my life. I think this OP is a poor advocate for sentencing reform.
