Baril calls for tougher sentencing guidelines

The Richmond paper reports here that AG candidate Baril wants sentencing guideline reform "because too many criminals are getting out of jail too soon."

The article concludes: "Baril said the Criminal Sentencing Commission should hold public hearings for commonwealth's attorneys and law enforcement, add jury trials to the sentencing statistics, and give the General Assembly and governor more oversight."
