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.”

“False testimonies and sworn statements are sometimes being used to support malicious complaints with the intent of harassing and persecuting innocent persons. This pernicious practice is aimed not only to harass innocent persons but also to put them behind bars and make their families suffer…Β It is noteworthy that because of these untruthful and inconsistent statements, we have witnessed how some men were robbed of their youth and freedom for a long period of time only to be freed later on account that the reason for their incarceration was based on a ‘polluted source.'”
