A panel of local and federal officials studying criminal penalties in the District of Columbia has put together a series of recommendations that would dramatically change the sentencing of offenders in D.C. Superior Court.

The tentative proposal, which will be unveiled at a public hearing this week and submitted to the D.C. Council next month, calls for the abolishment of parole for all D.C. offenses, mandatory supervised release terms for all felons, and capping most life sentences at 60 years or less.
