Larry Hogan on Crime

Republican Maryland Governor; possible presidential contender

 


Remove repeat violent offenders from city streets

Governor Larry Hogan provided an update on the joint law enforcement initiative to fight violent crime in Baltimore. This partnership, representing nearly 500 federal, state and local law enforcement officers and agents, resulted in more than 500 arrests, including 259 of the city's most violent criminals being removed from the streets.

Last fall, Gov. Hogan convened a series of meetings with federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to discuss how to best assist Baltimore City in addressing the violent crime crisis. The Hogan Administration then announced a series of immediate and aggressive steps to support the Baltimore Police Department in removing as many repeat violent offenders as possible from city streets as quickly as possible.

"We have no tolerance whatsoever to those who are engaging in this violent activity & terrorizing the streets of Baltimore," Gov. Hogan said. "We will find you, we will arrest you, and we will prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law."

Crack down on violent crime with truth-in-sentencing laws

We enacted tough anti-gang legislation, including a new Maryland RICO statute. This year, let's crack down on those violent criminals who use guns to commit crimes by passing tougher minimum sentences. And pass truth-in-sentencing legislation to require that repeat violent criminals serve their full sentences without the possibility of suspension, parole, or probation. Let's strengthen Maryland's gang statutes and RICO law to help take down these drug dealing criminal gang enterprises.

Justice for Victims Initiative: protect vulnerable citizens

Last year, we worked across the aisle to enact the Justice Reinvestment Act, which is the most important criminal justice reform in a generation. We worked to pass Noah's Law, named after Montgomery County police office--and a true Maryland hero-- Noah Leotta. We have already accomplished a great deal. But together, we can--and we must--do more.

This year, we plan to enact our Justice for Victims Initiative to improve services for the victims of crimes and to reduce the number of future victims of crime. We need to enact the Repeat Sexual Predator Prevention Act of 2017, the Protecting Victims of Sex Trafficking Act, and the Repeat Drunk Driving Offenders Act. All of this legislation will help make Maryland safer and will protect the lives of our most vulnerable citizens.

Vetoed expansion of voting rights to 40,000 ex-offenders

Several states have turned away from harsh criminal sentences and raised new questions about what happens to offenders once they are released, including their ability to participate fully in society. In February, the Maryland State Senate overrode a veto by Republican Gov. Larry Hogan and expanded voting rights to 40,000 ex-offenders. In that the case, the law allowed ex-convicts to vote while on parole or probation.

But the policies have been controversial and provoked a partisan divide. Last December, newly elected Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin (R) reversed an executive order by his Democratic predecessor to grant voting rights to ex-felons in the state once they had completed their sentences. Governor Bevin framed his opposition to the executive order signed by then-Gov. Steve Beshear (D) on procedural rather than ideological terms.
