UPDATE: Senate File 38 passed both House and Senate. Now awaiting the Governor's signature. 

Description: 

Senate File 38 would place a 42-month limit on probation sentences, though the Joint Interim Judiciary Committee amended the legislation to allow for some judicial discretion in still giving longer sentences.

ACLU position:

The ACLU of Wyoming supports this legislation though will encourage the legislature to remove or limit judicial discretion, as evidence shows probationary periods beyond even 36 months are costly and ineffective.
