Attorney General Holder Believes too Many People are Incarcerated in America - Criminal Defense Lawyer

As Criminal Defense Lawyers, it is encouraging to hear the United States Attorney General believes incarceration is overused. Now if we can just get him to stop requesting incarnation as punishment, we will be on the road to recovery.

Attorney General Eric Holder recently stated "As we speak, roughly one out of every 100 American adults is behind bars. Although the United States comprises just five percent of the world's population, we incarcerate almost a quarter of the world's prisoners... Such widespread incarceration is both inadvisable and unsustainable."

Right here in Las Cruces sits one of the busiest federal courthouses in the nation. Immigration, drug, and gun crimes flood the docket and incarceration of defendants, even on these victimless crimes, is common. Criminal defense lawyers working on educating the public, judges, and prosecutors about the high cost and low payoff of incarceration is critical.
