You can make a difference by joining thousands of other Connecticut citizens demanding an end to this reckless law. The first step is to call for a public hearing on Senator Markley's proposed legislation to terminate the program. Sign the petition below to begin the process of ending Early Release in Connecticut
"We the undersigned petitioners call upon Governor Malloy and the Connecticut Legislature to end the so-called "Early Release Law" that prematurely frees from jail hardened criminals guilty of such heinous crimes as rape, child molestation, arson, armed robbery and other vicious and violent crimes. Already at least 35 such hardened criminals released under Connecticut's flawed Early Release Law have been charged with murder. Many other prematurely freed convicts have been arrested and charged with sexual and violent crimes. It is time to put the safety of Connecticut families ahead of misplaced sympathy for hardened criminals. We insist the Legislature having hearings on Senator Markley's proposed legislation to terminate Connecticut's fatally flawed Early Release Program as soon as possible."
