If you are outraged by the recent sentencing in Georgia with the school teachers, yet the slap on the wrist to the educators that had intimate relations with an underage student and countless other cases in the news or simply in your homes – please reach out to your congressman.
On April 9, 2015, the United States Sentencing Commission voted to amend fraud guidelines to address some longstanding concerns regarding white collar crimes and their penalties/ punishments.
In order for the amendments to go into effect, Congress must approve on May 1, 2015. Please reach out to your Congressman, Cedric Richmond- expressing your support of the ‘White Collar Amendments (recently passed by the U.S.S.C)’ and urge that they are made retroactive. If you are in Orleans parish you may email Congressman Richmond by visiting www. Richmond.House.gov and registering to email him. Otherwise, please email your region/location specific congressman. The process is quick and easy.
If you are not sure who your congressman is, please visit – http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/
Again, Congress will vote on May 1, 2015. Please send your letters as soon as possible!
Support your concerns – make your voice be heard!
