Washington, DC – FAMM Vice President of Policy Molly Gill today said that the U.S. House of Representatives should improve a prison reform bill before sending it to the U.S. Senate. The bill, the Prison Reform and Redemption Act, H.R. 3356, sponsored by Reps. Doug Collins (R-GA) and Hakeem Jeffrie...

#PressRelease: "In previous years, #Maryland adopted evidence-based crime reduction strategies and eliminated some mandatory minimums. It’s disappointing that they are reversing that progress with sentences that will hurt communities and families.”

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan (R) signed into law HB 1029, SB 101, and SB 1137, three crime bills that include new mandatory minimum sentences.

I was able to speak with Andrea and I was so overwhelmed with the enthusiasm and positivity she shredded on my darkness dealing the prison system. How well informed she is and to speak from personal ...experiences made the pain I felt for my own family members made me feel as if I was not alone. Thank you for all FAMM do. See More

And what about the victims of these crimes? Probation for drug offenses just because they have mental health issues or military trauma?

Judges dnt give a 2shits about giving life to anyone cause they have the power to and abuse the fact they can. When I say life I necessarily dnt mean to you die in jail it can just mean damn near most... of your life. Long time sentencing doesn't always solve the problem, sometime it creates. They need to reevaluate first judges then the laws and ect. Many people are serving years beyond means and its sad. Instead of just throwing them behind bars for most of there life, try helping them by sending them threw programs of council. For murders and people who does bad things to children or women need stiff penalties. Anything with drugs need help more than anything. They should get time I agree but not no BS. I know I left out a lot and didn't speak on more but just get the picture of what im saying See More

The fair sentencing act of 2010 took my sentence from around ten years to fifty months. I would have gotten less but the judge felt it necessary to give me the high end of the guidelines. I was indic...ted for distribution of cocaine base. Actual amount was 7 grams. So if it wasn't for people like this I would have about five more years to do. I narrowly missed falling under 4 b.1 u.s. code title 18. (Career offender.) Had I fell under that they would have used two of my past possession charges (which they tried to do) to give 25 years in prison. I had no option but to fight so they took my three points of acception literally leaving me with a 36 in the guidelines. Which being a category four offender was close to 300 months for 7 grams of crack. Not everybody fights these cases. They make it to whereas you get punished to fight them. If I took plea I would have to have pled out to 15. Since I fought them an had I lost I would be doing a minimum of twenty five years to seven grams of crack. It took me 25 months fighting the feds to get the 50 months. And I was blessed to get that. All the time I spent in the county I seen so many people give up and not fight. They are handing out death sentences(life sentences) for drug cases. If it were not for famm thousands would still be locked up and thousands more would still be getting incarcerated unfairly and unjustly. So many thanks from me. Lawrence garner 09462-088 See More

Each crime and criminal is different. I think each case should be reviewed on a case to case basis and also be reviewed after a certain time period meaning the minimum time limit may be overlooked but... then you still have probation to follow if you're not going to get the minimum. You do the crime you have to do some kind of time and have a chance at rehabilitation. See More

Alot of people are in the system for crimes they didnt committ or for periods that just dont make sense. Everyone deserves a second chance. Who are we as the people to judge

Minimums are set unrealistically. Should be on base to base cases. I also hate welfare and college grant minimums! Hurting certain families.... Literally killing them financially.
