Richard Pocker talking at Senate briefing

As the Law Enforcement Leaders To Reduce Crime & Incarceration continue to urge the Senate to pass sentencing reform, NAFUSA member Richard Pocker was one of the leaders holding a standing-room only Capitol Hill briefing for Senate Republicans. Pocket was joined by Ronal Serpas, chairman of the group, former Attorney General Michael Mukasey, Major Cities Police Chiefs Association President Tom Manager, and NAFUSA member Brett Tolman.

Pocker is a partner in the Las Vegas office of Boies, Schiller & Flexner. He was the U.S. Attorney for the District of Nevada from 1989 to 1990, and was an assistant U.S. Attorney from 1985 to 1988.

“We’ve come to the point in the country at this time where sentencing reform is necessary. And we have to do it in such a way to protect the public.”
