65: Weldon Angelos on Mandatory Minimum Sentencing
2 days ago
Most of us have little experience with the justice system. That’s why we tend to believe that it’s operating in our interests at all times. Weldon Angelos knows better. He was at the center of a criminal case in which he was sentenced to 55 years in federal prison for a first time offense of selling marijuana. Mandatory minimum sentencing laws were the reason. Even the judge who sentenced him protested that the sentence was unjust and that there were far more serious crimes for which people would serve less time. Once you’ve heard Weldon’s story, you’ll better understand why there’s a need for criminal justice reform today.
