Sentencing Nerds Unite!

Tomorrow is a big day for sentencing nerds like us. The U.S. Sentencing Commission is holding an all-day public hearing on mandatory minimum sentences in federal law. I know, I know, it's like Christmas in May!

FAMM, DOJ, federal judges, and other advocacy groups will all be represented at the hearing. The goal for sentencing reformers is to make sure the Commission sticks to its guns and issues a new report (slated for release this October) that blasts mandatory minimums as hard as the Commission's 1991 report did.

If you are in DC tomorrow and have no plans (and no friends), drop by to watch the hearing at the Thurgood Marshall Federal Judicial Building at One Columbus Square, NE. Be there or be square - or, more likely, be both.
