Lauren Beth Gash on Crime


Truth-in-Sentencing: tougher penalties for gun violence

Lauren voted for legislation to ensure that criminals who use guns in the commission of a felony are punished with the full force of the law: adding 15 years to the sentences of people who use guns during a crime, 20 years to the sentences of people who fire guns during a crime, and up to life for people who injure someone with a gun during a crime. And Lauren sponsored Illinois’ Truth-in-Sentencing law to make sure that hardened criminals serve the time for which they received sentences.
