The Justice Department will release about 6,000 inmates early to ease overcrowding in federal prisons across the country. The move signals the department’s interest in sentencing reform, an issue that has attracted bipartisan support.

We’ll discuss the implications of this policy change and the practicalities of carrying it out.
