Members of the Missouri Association of Prosecuting Attorneys (MAPA) testified today in Jefferson City regarding concerns over the sentencing recommendations from the Missouri Sentencing Advisory Commission. (MoSAC). MAPA is calling for a study to determine smart sentencing practices instead of the inappropriate one-size-fits-all sentencing recommendations of the MoSAC. Additionally representatives from MAPA plan on testifying about the misleading way recidivism data is being shared as well as the lenient sentence recommendations being made by the MoSAC on violent crimes and sex crimes.
