A proposed state law would fight crime by making sure dangerous criminals stay in prison to serve out their sentences.

GOP State Representative Larry Frieman's bill would enable a district attorney to schedule a hearing to determine whether a convicted criminal is a "dangerous offender."

A criminal deemed dangerous would have to serve 85% of his sentence to become eligible for parole.

Dangerous offenders would include violent criminals, sexual attackers, fentanyl dealers, and terrorists, among others.
