Drug courts among McDonnell crime proposals

Republican gubernatorial candidate Bob McDonnell offered a package of law enforcement proposals yesterday.

The proposals are part of his public safety platform, reports The Virginian-Pilot. McDonnell’s plan inlcudes mandatory sentences for habitual drug dealers, lifetime monitoring for certain sex offenders and increased use of narcotics courts.

McDonnell acknowledged that the expansion of drug courts and higher number of inmates in state prisons would require additional spending, which could be a challenge during the economic recession.
