Lower house considers banning suspended sentence for habitual criminals

11:51 05/05/2012

MOSCOW, May 5 - RAPSI. The State Duma has received a draft law banning suspended sentences for habitual offenders or individuals convicted of grave offences.

The Criminal Code amendments as prepared by the Ministry of Justice would prevent a suspended sentence for a grave offence or for a crime committed while on parole.

Suspended sentences are also disallowed in cases of dangerous recidivism.

The draft law authors note that the proposed measures "are necessitated by a growing number of grave crimes committed either during the probation or parole period and are intended to raise the efficiency of efforts against recidivism."
