Description

This story looks at the disparities in judges decision while deciding jail terms for offenders. As this reporter finds out judges do not have strict guidelines to follow on the pretext that each crime is different. But often first time offenders get five years in prison while another judge would have let the person off on probation. This story also calls for regulation to control the number of inmates in prisons in Georgia.
