PRESS ADVISORY: State Representative Schroer Holds Press Conference to Discuss Criminal Sentencing Reform for Minors
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – State Representative Nick Schroer will be holding a press conference on Tuesday, January 21, 2020 to discuss his bill, HB 2201, and the need for reform in the sentencing review process of persons convicted as minors.
Schroer will speak on the bill in the House Lounge at 11:30 a.m., and discuss the importance of his legislation and how it relates to the case of Bobby Bostic.
