"Really what we all are looking for is being able to put that balance in place," said Cupp, of Ohio's fourth district. "So that we protect the public, we help the victims and that we don't unduly penalize those who have committed a crime but have rehabilitated."
 
Awards were also handed out to students for outstanding work.
