Atty. Gen. Eric Holder Jr.

Attorney General Eric Holder has a partial solution to the U.S.’s massive prison overcrowding – less time for drug offenders.

The Associated Press reports that Holder is addressing overcrowding by favoring drug treatment and community service programs in lieu of long prison sentences. He also support the early release of some elderly inmates.

“We need to ensure that incarceration is used to punish, deter and rehabilitate — not merely to convict, warehouse and forget,” Holder says in the speech he’s scheduled to deliver Monday.

A major change includes ending mandatory minimum sentences for drug offenders without ties to gangs, cartels or other large organizations.
