Obama acknowledges danger of solitary confinement
Highly-rated Fairfax County/Northern Virginia criminal defense/DWI defense attorney on the dangers of solitary confinement
Now having no further presidential elections to win, President Obama is coming out more strongly with statements for treating criminal defendants better through less harsh sentencing for those committing non-violent crimes and, recently, urging refuced use of solitary confinement.
I would have complimented Obama more had he taken these stands longer ago, but better late than never
I doubt that any of the viable 2016 Republican presidential candidates will be as good for criminal defendants as Obama.
