In this edition of #MattersofFact, a lawmaker calls for a review and revision of the country's sentencing guidelines. 

Rep. Vicente Veloso, chairman of the House committee on justice, says current rules place a cap of 40 years on those who have been convicted of multiple life sentences. 

He also talks about his committee's upcoming investigation into the implementation of law that reduces jail time for good behavior.
