LINCOLN — Gov. Dave Heineman charged Monday that those who oppose his proposal to require violent inmates to “earn” good-time reductions in their sentences are “soft on crime” and “stand with the criminals of the state.”
Those opponents would include State Sen. Ernie Chambers of Omaha, who has said he will block any attempt to change the state's good-time law, which gives inmates a one-day reduction in their sentence for every day served in prison.
