Elimination of mandatory minimums for crimes is a big step to criminal justice reform and many courts have removed them. It is imperative that we leave justice to the jurisdiction as there is more familiarity with the offender and mitigating circumstances. Many municipal and circuit judges are now utilizing more diversion programs to mitigate and they should be allowed to expand where possible as our justice system should be rehabilitative, not punitive in cases involving substance abuse/use.
