“When someone is guilty, the goals are to ensure that they are not convicted of anything more than what they actually did, or what the evidence can prove, and that their constitutional rights were not violated along the way and their sentence is fair based upon the crime and their prior history. However, not everyone charged is guilty, and nothing is scarier than representing someone whom you believe to be innocent,” Lane said.

Nation's Criminal Defense Bar Disappointed in Announcement of Regressive DOJ Policy on Asset Forfeiture

"NACDL President Barry J. Pollack said: "We should not return to a system that routinely allows the government to take property from people who have not been convicted of any crime, or in some cases even charged with one. Blatant conflicts of interest exist when law enforcement and prosecutorial agencies reap financial benefits from the forfeiture decisions they make. There is broad bipartisan support in both chambers of Congress for curtailing forfeiture abuses. NACDL urges Congress to act to ensure that the Department of Justice does not return to policies that have resulted in so many well-documented abuses in the past."

The Washington Post: Prosecutors are pushing back against Sessions order to pursue most severe penalties

"A week after U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions told federal prosecutors to 'charge and pursue the most serious, readily provable offense' and follow mandatory minimum sentencing guidelines, a bipartisan group of prosecutors at the state and local level is expressing concern. Thirty current and former state and local prosecutors have signed an open letter, which was released Friday by the nonprofit Fair and Just Prosecution, a national network working with newly elected prosecutors. The prosecutors say that even though they do not have to answer Sessions's call, the U.S. Attorney General's directive "marks an unnecessary and unfortunate return to past 'tough on crime' practices" that will do more harm than good in their communities."

On #LegalObserving: “To me, as an attorney and as a white person working on criminal justice reform, those people in the streets, those people who created this political moment where criminal justice policy reform is going to happen, those are the people I am accountable to in the reforms that I push. They’re leading this movement, and it’s our responsibility to make it as safe as we can for everyone out here,” said Sharlyn Grace of National Lawyers Guild of Chicago.

This is not normal: Felony charges for #J20 #Inauguration protesters while "across the board, all phones and cameras are being held as evidence, and they are also detaining gloves and cell phone chargers as evidence... It is extremely troubling," said NLG attorney Jeffrey Light. “I have been representing protesters for 13 years now, and I have never seen felony rioting charges in Washington, D.C. It is not one of the standard laws that they tend to use. This is unusual. It is rare to use that charge.”
