LDF Policy Director Todd A. Cox joined NPR/WBUR’s program On Point to discuss sentencing reform – and the policy reversal – at the Justice Department. Other guests included: Matt Zapotosky, a reporter covering the Justice Department for the Washington Post’s national security team; and Bill Otis, an adjunct professor of law at the Georgetown University Law Center and Former Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia.  On the program, Todd discussed why the new charging and sentencing directive from Attorney General Sessions will have a devastating impact on African-American communities.
