Obama to free 8nonviolent drug offenders

By Liz GoodwinDecember 17, 2014 5:40 PMYahoo News
President BarackObama will shorten the sentences of eight prisoners serving time for nonviolentdrug crimes and pardon 12 ex-convicts, the JusticeDepartment announced Wednesday.The act ofpresidential clemency is traditional around Christmastime, but Obama’s action is part of his administration’s broader push to roll back harsh mandatorydrug sentences that imprisoned people for decades for nonviolent drug crimes.The “tough on crime” drug laws contributed to America’s record of locking up a larger share ofits population than any other nation in the world.Recently, judgeshave been given more flexibility around mandatory minimums, and in 2010Congress narrowed the disparity that sent crack dealers to prison for a hundredtimes longer than cocaine dealers. But those who were incarcerated under theold laws remained there, prompting the Justice Department to announce in Aprilthat nonviolent offenders could apply for clemency through a special initiativecalled “Clemency Project 2014.” Thousands of prisoners have done so, andan outside group of nonprofit lawyers is currently vetting the applications. Anadministration official said the president will most likely grant morecommutations of this kind as the applications begin to land on the pardonattorney’s desk.Barbara Scrivner,who was serving 30 years for her minor role in her drug-dealer husband’s meth ring, is among the eight prisonerswhose sentences were commuted by the president on Wednesday. The subject of aYahoo News feature last April, Scrivner said that two of her previous clemencyapplications were denied by the pardon attorney’s office in 2005 and 2011, though even the judge whosentenced her unequivocally supported her petition. Obama and Attorney GeneralEric Holder reformed the pardon attorney’s office in April, replacing Ronald Rodgers, who hadbeen criticized for knee-jerk rejections of petitions, with Deborah Leff, an advocacy-mindedattorney, to lead the office. One of the factors Leff may be givingless weight to is remorse in petitions. In the past, prisoners wererequired to show unqualified contrition to get a second lookfrom the pardon attorney.Scrivner’s attorney, Sam Kauffman, said his clientcried when he called her to tell her she had received the commutation from thepresident. She still had more than four years of her sentence left to serve.“It should have happened a long time ago,but what are you going to do?” Kauffman said.In April, Scrivnertold Yahoo she wanted to get out of prison to be there for her daughter,Alannah, who was just a toddler when she was sentenced.”Ten years isa long time to be in prison. And now it’s been 20 years,” Scrivner said at the time.”It just doesn’t seem real to me.”The eightprisoners, all of whom have served at least 10 years, will be released in June.“While all eight were properly heldaccountable for their criminal actions, their punishments did not fit theircrimes, and sentencing laws and policies have since been updated to ensure morefairness for low-level offenders,” Deputy Attorney General Jim Cole said in a statement.





斯克里夫纳的律师,山姆考夫曼说,当他给他的委托人打电话,告诉他总统已批准减刑时,她哭了。即使她还有四年多的服刑期。“这本该很早之前就该发生的事,但你能怎么办?”考夫曼说。斯克里夫纳在四月告诉雅虎,她曾想逃出监狱去看女儿,他的女儿叫阿兰那,当她被判刑时,女儿才刚学会走步“监狱里的10年太漫长了,眼见快住了20年了” 斯克里夫纳此时说道,“对我来说这太不真实了”.

Selling somethingyou know to be highly addictive and destructive isn’t exactly something thatshould be tolerated. Con men, thieves, hackers and swindlers could beconsidered non-violent, why not let them off too?
