Yossi Gestetner Calls for Justice and Sentencing Reform

The Journal News reports on the release of Sholom Rubashkin from prison as a result of the first commutation given by Trump as president:  “‘This was the right step,’ said the co-founder of the Orthodox Jewish Public Affairs Council Yossi Gestetner, who started a Twitter hashtag #IAJew in 2010 in support of Rubashkin. “The punishment did not fit the crime.’ He added that he hoped the White House and lawmakers from both parties will pass reforms in criminal justice, sentencing and prison treatment.”
