When prosecutors do take a case in entrance of a jury, “the request can be for no more than 20 years for a determinate sentence, meaning one that can’t be reviewed or changed by a parole board,” the Post writes.
And life with out parole is off the desk. Won’t occur. Don’t ask. It’s not even being mentioned.
As for the half the place the wokes and criminals will stand up and cheer, Bragg outlines how prosecutors will cut back prices within the following instances:

Also, suspected sellers will solely be prosecuted on felony prices in the event that they’re additionally accused of extra severe crimes or are literally caught within the act of promoting medicine.
