2017 Recidivist Review Project
In the spring of 2017, the District Attorneys’ Association of Georgia (DAAG) engaged the Prosecuting Attorneys’ Council of Georgia (PAC) to gather information from the Georgia Department of Corrections (GDOC) about inmates under recidivist sentences where the actual sentence was for a drug offense and the defendant had received more than ten (10) years in prison. PAC distributed the information received from GDOC to the District Attorneys for review. The District Attorneys were to evaluate each case and determine whether or not any warranted a sentence modification based on current sentencing policies and, among other factors, the nature of the crime committed, the criminal history of the offender, and the length of the original sentence.
