WHAT YOU CAN DO TO SHOW YOUR SUPPORT FOR SHOLOM RUBASHKIN:
The federal court officially sentenced Sholom Rubashkin Tuesday to 27 years in prison for his bank fraud conviction,
which is greater than the amended recommendations from prosecutors
and is inconsistent with calls from throughout the legal community
for him to be sentenced in a manner similar to other men and women convicted of white-collar crimes.
Show your support for Sholom Rubashkin by telling the Justice Department: “This sentence is unfair. This sentence is excessive. This sentence is not in the public’s interest.”
