Legislative Changes to the Criminal Code (Bill C-25)

Re: Legislative Changes to the Criminal Code (Bill C-25)

On February 22, 2010, Bill C-25, the Truth in Sentencing Act comes into force. The bill amends the Criminal Code (the Code) to limit the credit a judge may grant for any time spent in pre-sentencing custody, commonly called “credit for time served.”

What's the limit? And what's it limited to? Pre trial? Murder charges, theft over 5000, serious crimes , all crimes?
