Judge Wald Testifies on Racial Impact of Mandatory Minimums
From Margy Love: Here is testimony that will be given tomorrow by Judge Patricia Wald before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights on the discriminatory impact of mandatory minimum sentences. This hearing was sought by the ABA and by a coalition of other justice advocacy groups. It is the first international inquiry into United States sentencing practices, and the fact it is being held is significant.
