In the State of Georgia, there is an act known as the “Seven Deadly Sins” imposes hefty mandatory minimum jail sentences with no early parole for certain criminal offenses. Said offenses are:
- Armed robbery w/firearm
- Aggravated child molestation
- Aggravated sodomy
- Aggravated sexual battery
Each of these offenses carries a minimum ten year mandatory incarceration sentence. In addition anyone convicted of a second “seven deadly sin” offense will serve life without the possibility of parole.
In addition, there are over 20 offenses in Georgia that require at least 90% of a given sentence be served before a defendant can be released to parole.
