Linda Lingle on Crime

Republican Governor (HI)

Implemented “3-strikes” law for habitual violent felons

We are proud of our Administration’s successful push for the “3-strikes” law that provides mandatory sentences of 30 years to life for habitual violent felons. This law, which became Act 81 on May 8th, makes it clear that felons who commit multiple violent crimes will go to jail and not be able to threaten the public again. We were successful in mandating incarceration for enticement of a child through the internet and does not allow this offense to be erased from the record of the perpetrator.

End death penalty; DNA proves innocence

The Death Penalty is too permanent given the imperfect nature of human justice. The science of DNA testing is increasingly showing the large numbers of innocent people sentenced to death.
