U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder states that that federal judges should determine criminal punishments case by case; specifics of the federal crime should be taken into consideration rather than what statistics say a certain kind of federal defendant will do in the future. He says this must be done, specifically, to avoid unfair treatment towards minorities. The U.S. Attorney General expressed concern over what he believes are a number of federal judges basing their assessment of punishments on certain risk factors, such as a federal defendant’s education level, work experience, or type of residence.
