Prof. Rod Uphoff

Professor Rodney Uphoff was recently quoted in a KRCG-TV story regarding recent changes to the Missouri criminal code that will be enacted in 2017. Legislators made changes to the “prior and persistent offender” law, which is also known as the “three strike law.” Professor Uphoff said one factor driving these changes in the criminal justice system is cost.

He was quoted, “I think the legislature in Missouri and other states recognize that we have to get smarter about who we send to prison and make sure we’re not sending people to prison unnecessarily.”
