How to Implement Prosecutor-Initiated Resentencing: Unveiling the National Playbook
The National District Attorneys Association is partnering with national nonprofit For The People, to provide a two-part series of educational webinars on a rapidly emerging area of law: Prosecutor-Initiated Resentencing.
This is the second installment in the two-part series providing hands-on education to support resentencing in prosecutors’ offices. Hillary Blout, Founder and Executive Director of For The People will unveil her organization’s national playbook for effective implementation of PIR. The innovation, championed by For The People, enables prosecutors to review past sentences for potential release from prison when continued incarceration is not in the interest of justice. Now, prosecutors in several states across the country are working to enact and implement PIR policies, with close to 500 people released and hundreds more cases under review.
Last webinar introduced the emerging area of law known as PIR, providing firsthand accounts from a California prosecutor and resentenced person. Now, this webinar will dig deeper into what Prosecutor-Initiated Resentencing looks like when it scales across the country. It will peel back the curtain to answer questions around enacting a PIR law, launching a resentencing unit, data analysis, case review, and more technical details—using the new national playbook as a tool for continued support. For The People Founder and Executive Director Hillary Blout will be joined by Carla Lee, Deputy Chief of Staff at the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. Lee leads the resentencing unit in her office and will work with Hillary to impart lessons learned and best practices for all offices interested in PIR implementation.
