Michele Hanisee on McIntyre in the Morning (KABC)

Michele Hanisee was a guest on McIntyre in the Morning to discuss an appellate court in California ruled this week that three strikes offenders,  those guilty of violent crimes, can get out of jail decades early,  thanks to Prop 57.  Michele told McIntyre that the measure is exacting a high price in order to save money on jails. “Hopefully the Reducing Crime and Keeping California Safe Act would be a partial fix because, mind you, everyone serving a three strikes sentence is a violent offender, because strikes are violent crimes, but their present offense might not necessarily be defined as a violent under Prop 57. So, if we can redefine some of those as violent to make them ineligible for early release that might help some.”
