More Pardons for Federal Drug Offenders!
This week the Attorney General, Eric Holder, announced that the United States would be offering more pardons and clemency for federal drug offenders. President Obama wants to make sure that “everyone has a fair shot” at the clemency process and having their sentences reduced. The State Department is in the process of hiring many more attorneys to review the applications for relief from federal sentencing.
This policy reflects the reality that far too many non-violent drug and narcotic offenders are serving unfairly long sentences in the federal jail. We will keep you posted on all developments under this new program.
