PingBills | Senate Bill 247, Anti-Contraband in Prison Act of 2019

“The seeming continued proliferation of contraband in prison is an appalling show of contempt for our justice system, whose main purpose is to reform and rehabilitate inmates for their eventual return to society. A convicted criminal resists reformation when he is still exposed to the very objects that had caused his incarceration. Indeed, it would be difficult for an inmate to feel some remorse considering that he still has the comforts of home even when he is behind bars.”
