Professor Rory Little on the DOJ's "Sea Change" in Federal Sentencing Policies

Federal prosecutors will no longer seek mandatory minimum sentences for nonviolent drug offenders, part of a broad new effort to focus on violent crimes and national security while reducing the nation's gigantic prison population, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday at a meeting of the American Bar Association in San Francisco.

Holder described a sea change in federal law enforcement strategy that marks a significant turn away from the all-out "war on drugs" of the past 40 years. Join us for a compelling discussion, featuring UC Hastings College of Law Professor Rory Little, a nationally recognized authority on criminal litigation ethics, federal criminal law, appellate litigation, and constitutional issues.

Listen to Little's analysis here.
