The body of a missing hiker has been found in Yosemite National Park. 48 year old Scott Tenczar of San Jose’s body was found Saturday in the north east end of the park. No word on how the man may have died, but he was described as an experienced backpacker, who was last seen at a ranger station outside of the park at the end of July. It’s the second body found in Yosemite in less than a week. A park ranger was found dead Friday. He disappeared a few days before that.

The state legislature looking to change the way convicts are sentenced, putting caps on the length of stays behind bars. Thousands of offenses with various term lengths depending on various other pieces of the crime. A Senate Bill being considered would limit the maximum amount of time in prison for felonies to twice the amount of the time convicts get for a base term. There was a similar law in 1976 but it was repealed in 1997. Those who support the new bill say it’ll “refine” the system, those against say it’s arbitrary and doesn’t allow a judge the ability to sentence someone appropriately for crimes.
