Coalition Letter to Senate Judiciary on PROTECT Act of 2022 (July 2022)

We write to express our continued opposition to S. 3951, the PROTECT Act of 2022. In addition to creating a new five-year mandatory minimum prison sentence for possession of child pornography, the bill would make certain federal sentencing guidelines mandatory, reversing almost two decades of reform ushered in by United States v. Booker.  The bill would resurrect the failed and disproportionately severe sentencing policies of the past, with no corresponding benefit to public safety. We urge you to oppose it.
