As a former prosecutor, Senator Raoul has effectively balanced the promotion of public safety while still strongly supporting a fair judicial system. He has successfully passed legislation that would strengthen penalties for certain categories of offenses, including requiring background checks on non-licensed sellers and buyers of guns at gun shows, and promoting the speedier prosecution of perpetrators of identity theft.
Senator Raoul has also successfully sponsored important legislation aimed to ease the eventual reintegration of ex-offenders into the community and to reduce recidivism, including legislation that allows good conduct credit to be awarded to inmates who earn their high school diplomas or GEDs, as well as inmates who participate in substance abuse programs.
