National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, May 9, 2014
Attorney Cynthia W. Roseberry, who is currently the executive director of the Federal Defenders of the Middle District of Georgia, Inc., was appointed as the project manager for Clemency Project 2014.
Clemency Project 2014 is a working group composed of the Federal Defenders, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), Families Against Mandatory Minimums, the American Bar Association, and National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL), as well as individuals active within those organizations. The Project was launched in January after Deputy Attorney General James Cole asked the legal profession to provide pro bono assistance to federal prisoners who would likely have received a shorter sentenced if they’d been sentenced today.
