Default Early Kick Out?

Have any oy you heard about a bill called Early Kick Out? Govener Perry supposedly signed a bill that releases first time offenders with five years or less. I tried to do some research but couldnt find anything. Any help is appreciated.

I kept up with most of the bills relating to TDCJ that were introduced in the last legislature, but I can't remember there ever being such a bill introduced. And with Gov. Perry's stance on punishment, I sure can't see him even considering signing such a bill.....a bill such as that would have only gotten a quick veto from Gov. Perry.

I don't know about that part of a particular bill, but I did read in today's paper that Perry vetoed some changes in the parole system. I think it was because the bill included reduced time for violent offenders. Back to the drawing board I guess.

Being a "tough on crime state" I doubt very seriously that something like this would come about. I personally wish they would consider some type of rehabilitation program for first time or repeat offenders instead of locking up and throwing away the key. Something needs to be done to prepare our loved ones when they come home so they don't reoffend later and help give them direction on jobs and so forth and a productive life out side those corupt walls.

You may be thinking of a bill that was just approved by the House and is now in the Senate for approval. It is designed to free up probation officers so thay will have lighter caseloads and can pay more attention to each individual. To the best of my understanding, anyone who is on probation for a non violent offense and has done more than 5 years will be released from probation, and from now on no one will get over 5 years probation for a non violent crime. I asked my own PO about it and she said yes, that's the deal. So I am keeping my fingers crossed, because I got 10 years probation on a non violent charge and have done 7.
