Lawmakers say changes to Mississippi’s criminal justice system will be among their top priorities for the legislative session beginning today.

Changes could include support for prisoners to re-enter society, ways to wipe out records of past convictions and sentencing relief for prisoners convicted before an earlier round of sentencing changes.
