Ind. Law - "To hear the Indiana Prosecuting Attorneys Council tell it, the new criminal code needs more than minor tinkering"

That is a quote from near the beginning of a very long story by Douglas Walker in the Sunday Muncie Star-Press.

From "page" 5 of the story:

The Board of Managers of the Indiana Judges Association this month announced that it opposed any “substantive changes” to House Enrolled Act 1006, and “specifically (opposes) reducing or eliminating the discretion of judges to sentence criminal appropriately... including the exercise of discretion to suspend sentences when appropriate.”

The Indiana Public Defender Council has also been largely supportive of the new code, including reductions in penalties for drug-related crimes.
