November 4 Thursday

Debevoise's Holloway Project and "Second Looks" in Federal Sentencing

  • 4:10PM to 6:00PM
  • SLB Room 120

The Holloway Project at Debevoise & Plimpton has advocated for federal prisoners, overwhelmingly men of color, who were given bone-crushing sentences pursuant to the cruelest mandatory sentencing law the federal system had to offer: the 25-year mandatory and consecutive sentence for “second or successive” firearm convictions under 18 U.S.C. § 924(c). The typical Holloway Project client is a middle-aged man who was sentenced decades ago for robbery sprees in which a firearm was used but no one was hurt and little was stolen.
