Scott M. Bennett, JD Biography

Title:
Associate Attorney with Lewis and Roca LLP
Position:
Pro to the question "Should Felons Who Have Completed Their Sentence (Incarceration, Probation, and Parole) Be Allowed to Vote?"
Reasoning:

“It will be difficult, in this age of punitive politics, to persuade legislators to give greater rights to ex-felons. But advocates must persevere. Giving ex-felons the right to vote would help them turn their lives around, would make communities safer, and is simply the right thing to do in a democracy.”
