McMillin co-authored a bill that would bring changes to Indiana’s criminal justice system if signed.

A bill co-authored by State Rep. Jud McMillin (R-Brookville) could force changes to Indiana’s criminal sentencing law.

The House and Senate passed the bill this week.

The bill would give harsher penalties for the worst offenders and place non-violent criminals in more appropriate correctional facilities. It could also save the state money by reducing the prison population.

Aaron Negangard, the Dearborn and Ohio County prosecutor and chairman of the Indiana Prosecuting Attorneys Legislative Committee, said the bill is critical to public safety for all citizens.

If the bill is signed by Governor Pence it will be the first overhaul of the system in more than three decades.
