Friedman Instrumental in Early Release
The Washington Post recently highlighted ALI Secretary Paul L. Friedman’s involvement in the early release of Byron Lamont McDade, who had been serving a prison sentence for his connection to a 2002 D.C. drug conspiracy.
Due to the mandatory sentencing guidelines in effect at the time of his conviction, McDade was sentenced to 27 years in prison. Judge Friedman of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia has made multiple pleas to the Bureau of prisons and the White House requesting clemency on behalf of Mr. McDade. Mr. McDade was one of 61 inmates recently granted relief by President Obama.
In addition to being a member of ALI Council, Judge Friedman is a participant on several projects, including serving as an Adviser on Model Penal Code: Sentencing, portions of which will be presented for a membership vote at this year’s Annual Meeting.
