King’s sociology associate professor Matthew G. Yeager was recently honoured for his long involvement with the National Alliance of Sentencing Advocates and Mitigation Specialists.

The organization held their 20th annual conference in Baltimore, Maryland in March where Yeager and the other founding members of NASAMS were recognized for their work and continuous involvement.  The group has about 100 members in the United States and Canada who provide sentencing alternatives, sentencing mitigation, parole advocacy and capital punishment mitigation.  Together with the National Legal Aid and Defender Association, the members advocate for equal access to justice for Americans.

Prior to becoming a teaching professor, Dr. Yeager was a sentencing and parole expert both here in Canada and in the United States.
