There’s a new law in the books that will require violent convicted criminals to serve 100 percent of their sentences.

The co-author of the new “Truth in Sentencing” law, Tennessee Speaker of the House Cameron Sexton, told Wake Up Mephis Wednesday that the Mid South has been too soft on crime.

Sexton called out Shelby County District Attorney candidate Steve Mulroy (D), who has been a vocal opponent of the bipartisan “Truth in Sentencing” law.

“We’ve had Democrat support for the bill because I think we all understand, unlike that leftist guy who’s running for D.A. down there [Memphis], we understand, just like all the residents of Tennessee understands, you can’t be soft on crime. And we have a sentencing problem right now,” Sexton said on KWAM. 

The Speaker continued: “It’s interesting to watch these soft on crime groups, these leftist people who just don’t want people to have to be in prison.”

The new law takes effect July 1.
