Federal Sentences for Nonviolent Crimes

The White House is preparing to push for legislation that would reduce federal sentences for nonviolent crimes. According to press secretary Josh Earnest, President Obama is expected to champion sweeping reform of the criminal justice system and present ideas to make the system “safer, fairer and more effective” during a speech to the NAACP annual convention today in Philadelphia.

Later this week, President Obama is expected to become the first sitting U.S. president to visit a federal prison when he goes to a medium-security facility in El Reno, Oklahoma and will also sit for an interview with Vice News for an HBO documentary on the criminal justice system.
