On April 23rd, 2014 Deputy Attorney General James Cole announced a new set of criteria the Justice Department and White House will use when considering clemency petitions from federal prisoners. The new criteria will help the Justice Department identify federal prisoners who, if sentenced today under current sentencing laws and policies, would likely have received a substantially lower sentence.

The Clemency Project 2014 is a working group composed of lawyers and advocates including the Federal Defenders, the American Civil Liberties Union, Families Against Mandatory Minimums, the American Bar Association, and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. The group members collaborate to recruit and train attorneys on how to screen for prisoners who meet the new criteria, to alert prisoners who could meet the new criteria, and to find lawyers to represent the prisoners at no cost.
