Conor Lamb on Crime

 

 


Pursue and prosecute the criminals; aid the victims

"You have to fight hard against these people who are killing our people with heroin and with violent crimes but you have to lend a hand to people with addiction who need help," Mr. Lamb said. "If someone is an addict and not a heroin trafficker we shouldn't prosecute them; we should try to help them."

"That image of a lawyer standing up in a criminal case and doing the right thing always stuck with me," he said. "I love the idea of building cases and really going after bad guys."

First step: reduce recidivism & mass incarceration.

Lamb voted YEA First Step Act

Congressional Summary:

Opposing press release from Rep. Doug LaMalfa (R-CA-1):: The reform sentencing laws in this bill may compromise the safety of our communities. Criminals convicted of violent crimes would have the opportunity to achieve 'low risk' status and become eligible for early release. California already has similar laws in place--Propositions 47 and 57--which have hamstrung law enforcement and caused a significant uptick in crime.

Supporting press release from Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY-10):: S. 756 establishes a new system to reduce the risk that [federal prisoners] will commit crimes once they are released. Critically, S. 756 would not only implement these reforms to our prison system, but it also takes a crucial first step toward addressing grave concerns about our sentencing laws, which have for years fed a national crisis of mass incarceration. The bill is a 'first step' that demonstrates that we can work together to make the system fairer in ways that will also reduce crime and victimization.

Legislative outcome: Concurrence Passed Senate, 87-12-1, on Dec. 18, 2018; Concurrence Passed House 358-36-28, Dec. 20, 2018; President Trump signed, Dec. 21, 2018
