This sentence is unfair. This sentence is excessive. This sentence is not in the public’s interest.
Why was Sholom Rubashkin targeted by prosecutors in Iowa and why is he getting 27 years in prison when others convicted of similar crimes have received significantly shorter sentences?
More than two dozen former senior Justice Department officials – including six former U.S. attorneys general – said it would be an “absurdity” for a sentence of life in prison, or anything close to it, for a 51-year-old, first-time, non-violent offender.
We, as concerned citizens, are watching the case of Sholom Rubashkin, and he deserves equal and fair administration of justice under the law.
