Robina Executive Director Kelly Lyn Mitchell Quoted in Star Tribune about the Minnesota Rehabilitation & Reinvestment Act

Robina Executive Director Kelly Lyn Mitchell was quoted by the Star Tribune in an article covering the Minnesota Rehabilitation & Reinvestment Act, a bill that recently passed the House, and is expected to be signed by Governor Tim Walz. Once signed, the bill would allow qualified inmates to receive reduced sentencing. Discussing the difficulty in comparing sentencing between different states, Director Mitchell commented that "There are too many variables to take into account, including how the crime is defined, charging practices and back-end mechanisms that affect time served."
