Supports mandatory Three Strikes sentencing laws

Governor Allen rejected the misguided excuses of the criminal apologists and determined it was time to hold criminals accountable for their violent actions. Governor Allen abolished the lenient, dishonest parole system that was releasing violent criminals after serving only a fraction of their sentence. He instituted truth-in-sentencing so that when a judge or jury sentences a rapist to 12 years, he serves 12 years.

Try juvenile felons as adults

We enacted sweeping juvenile justice reforms to allow juveniles who commit violent crimes such as rape and armed robbery to be tried as adults. You all recognize that these youthful predators need to be held accountable, and the punishment ought to fit the severity of the crime - regardless of age!
