Recently, there has been a lot of traction regarding criminal sentencing reform for minors. Representative Bruce Westerman from Arkansas is leading the charge to reform the way that the justice system of the federal government handles the criminal sentencing of minors. He recently introduced a legislative package to change the way that minors are sentenced following a criminal conviction. A Package with Three Separate Bills The package that was proposed by Westerman includes three separate bills. These are: Sara’s Act: This is a bill that is attracting support on both sides of the aisle.
