FAMM’s mission is to protect public safety and promote efficiency in the criminal justice system by advocating for individualized, proportional criminal sentencing laws. We are not against punishment or prisons. We simply believe that sentences should fit the crime and the offender, and that judges are in the best position to decide the proper punishment in each and every case. Current federal mandatory minimum sentencing laws tie the hands of federal judges and require the imposition of lengthy, ineffective, and unjust one-size-fits-all sentences.
