North State Assemblyman James Gallagher and Senator Jim Nielsen will present legislation they say keeps convicted murders in prison. Gallagher and Nielsen will present Erik's Law in front of the Assembly Public Safety Committee today that would reform recently passed legislation to ensure that juvenile murderers found to be unrehabilitated by a judge shall not be automatically granted a juvenile parole hearing. According to a press release from Assemblyman Gallagher's office, this change allows second chances and the opportunity to re-enter society for juveniles who demonstrated change and remorse, while catching those who are a irreparably sociopath by nature and are likely to victimize again.
