National Association of Assistant U.S. Attorneys
NAAUSA was founded to promote, protect, serve, and advocate for the common interests of this nation's front-line federal prosecutors and civil attorneys dedicated to safeguarding justice for all Americans as Assistant United States Attorneys.
A video produced by the National Association of Assistant United States Attorneys highlights the risks America takes when it releases drug traffickers early from prison, as would happen under legislation currently under consideration in Congress.
The video highlights the cold-blooded murders in Columbus, Ohio last month of two children and their mother – ten-year old Anaesia Green, her seven-year old sister Breya Hammonds, and their mother Erveena Hammonds – when, as police charge, their throats were slit by Hammonds’ ex-boyfriend, Wendell Callahan, a federally-convicted cocaine trafficker released early from federal prison. Callahan would still have been behind bars at the time of the murders but for his early release from prison due to "sentencing reform" legislation passed by Congress in 2010.
Sentencing Reform Leads to More Violent Crime
Not all crimes are preventable — but some are. The serious crimes that have been committed recently by lawfully convicted felons who were prematurely released from prison as a result of so-called sentencing reforms, when these felons otherwise would have still been in prison, clearly could have been prevented.Read More
