Serve 65% of time in prison instead of 85% for non-violent crimes

Messages Sent So Far
Change the law for non-violent offenders to serve 65% of their time instead of 85%. Too much time is being giving to non-violent offenders. Most get more time than the person that killed, raped, molested, etc and it's not fair.. Fairness for everyone is all I'm seeking regardless of who you are. The law that's in effect now targets certain people.

I support this initiative. It's truly sad that non-violent members obtain more time than violent offenders. The state of Florida needs to change their way of doing business especially since the programs that they claim to offer or not offered.

Please reduce to 65% my son committed non violent crimes, I am in support of paying for the crime committed,however when someone is serving less time for the rape of an infant compared to writing a bad check, it is quite an imbalance.
