ACT wrong on new Three Strikes law

ACT in Free Press said:

Meanwhile, Three Strikes is coming back. Serious sexual and violent offenders automatically get the maximum sentence on their third conviction. 

This is not correct. The proposed law will exempt the majority of recidivist criminals from going a strike because of the new criteria that if a Judge gives them a light sentence, they they don’t get a strike. And the proposed law also gives judges much more discretion to change third strike sentences.

The law ACT is supporting is a Claytons Law – sounds like the old Three Strikes Law, but is a weak copy of it.
