Report on IACHR hearing on mandatory minimums

As recently detailed here, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) today held a hearing to explore the "Discriminatory Impact of Mandatory Minimum Sentences in the Federal Criminal System of the United States of America."  The Sentencing Project now has this terrific webpage discussing the hearing and providing links to the testimony from all the presenters.

In addition, the ACLU now has this press release discussing the hearing and providing this link to its submitted statement.  (The ABA previously released this press release about its involvement in the IACHR hearing.)
