This analysis was prepared by staff of The Sentencing Project with research assistance by Diana Wong. The Sentencing Project is a national non-profit organization engaged in research and advocacy on criminal justice policy issues.

The Sentencing Project is a nonpartisan public policy organization that does not support or oppose the candidacy of any candidate for public office. This document is designed to make the public better aware of the candidates' positions on criminal justice policy, an issue that has received relatively little attention in the current political debate. Voters should learn all they can about the candidates on a range of issues and should not rely on any single source of information before making their decision.
