NACDL is the largest national association of criminal defense lawyers. The group favors an anticrime policy that focuses on “the social and economic benefits of crime prevention — through education, economic opportunity, and rehabilitation of former offenders.” It adds, “We need to eschew such simplistic, expensive, and ineffective 'solutions' as inflexible mandatory sentencing, undue restriction of meritorious appeals [and] punishment of children as adults…” The group can put journalists in touch with criminal defense attorneys nationwide through its state and local affiliates.
