Please write your state Delegate and express support for this legislation. Time is of the essence and you need to show your support now as the bill will likely be heard by the subcommittee on Monday, 13 February.
Yes! This will affect my cousin who is serving a 55 years sentence and was sentence as an juvenile at the age of 15. Fingers are crossed waiting for the House vote.
