Our HB 107 Letter

“To my representative and senator,
I am writing to urge your strong consideration of HB107, which repeals Alabama’s Habitual Felony Offender Act.

Young people throughout our state are united in the opinion that many people are ‘caught’ for crimes that do not warrant a life sentence.

Alabama’s HFOA, the harshest repeat offender law in the Southeast (with the exception of Mississippi), allows prior convictions committed when individuals were less than 18, as well as low-level drug and property crimes, to be used for enhancement purposes.

Nearly 5,600 individuals in Alabama are serving long prison sentences enhanced by the HFOA, including more than 1,600 lifers.

Of these, 239 will die in prison unless the law is changed.

HB 107 gives Alabama’s Circuit Court judges discretion in reviewing life without parole sentences imposed decades ago and to revisit those sentences in circumstances where incarcerated people in their 50s and 60s have engaged in positive programs, demonstrated rehabilitation, and are no risk to public safety if re-sentenced and released.”
