HEA 1006 was recommended by the Criminal Code Evaluation Commission and coauthored by Rep. Jud McMillin (R-Brookville), Rep. Matt Pierce (D-Bloomington) and Rep. Linda Lawson (D-Hammond).
“HEA 1006 will benefit Indiana’s communities and its courts,” Steuerwald said. “We will thoroughly study the sentencing so that it best suits the crime, keeping violent and sexual offenders behind bars longer, and assist local community corrections in dealing with non-violent offenders.”
Steuerwald represents portions of Hendricks County. He is chairman of the Judiciary Committee and the Statutory Committee on Ethics and also serves on the Courts and Criminal Code Committee and Family, Children and Human Affairs Committee.
