    Rep. Gerald Watkins, a Paducah Democrat who will serve in his last legislative session in 2018, hopes criminal justice bills for which he has advocated will be passed.

    Watkins has prefiled a bill that would lower the offense for first-degree possession of a controlled substance from a class D felony to a class A misdemeanor. The bill would also reduce the penalty for possession of fake controlled substances, and possession of a methamphetamine precursor, to a misdemeanor.
