A Message from the Attorney General: Sentencing Reform

Post Date: January 23, 2014

Today, the Attorney General shared a special video message about sentencing reform. From the Department of Justice:

Attorney General Holder today called on Congress to pass common-sense reforms like the bipartisan Smarter Sentencing Act, which would give judges more discretion in determining appropriate sentences for people convicted of certain federal drug crimes. These reforms would advance the goals of the Smart on Crime initiative – and other efforts that are currently underway – by fundamentally improving policies that exacerbate, rather than alleviate, key criminal justice challenges.
