San Diego Attorney Meets with President Obama Regarding Crime & Incarceration
Former United States Attorney Gregory A. Vega, with the San Diego law firm of Seltzer Caplan McMahon Vitek, is a founding member of the newly formed “Law Enforcement Leaders to Reduce Crime and Incarceration.” The group is meeting with President Obama today to outline the goals of responding to the crisis of widespread unnecessary incarceration while ensuring community safety. The new group is currently composed of 130 police chiefs, sheriffs, prosecutors and attorneys general from across the country joining together as a surprising new voice calling for reform in our criminal justice system. “Law Enforcement Leaders to Reduce Crime and Incarceration marks an unprecedented partnership among the nation's top law enforcement on the local, state and federal levels to push for major reforms in our criminal justice system at a time when there is bi-partisan recognition that we can both reduce the unprecedented numbers of citizens being sentenced to prison while also maintaining the safety of the public,” said Vega. Vega, whose legal practice focuses on corporate counseling and litigation, specialized criminal defense and U.S./Mexico international transactions, is the president elect of the National Association of Former United States Attorneys.
