North Carolina Speaker of the House Tim Moore appointed Moore County District Attorney Maureen Krueger to the Task Force on Sentencing Reforms for Opioid Drug Convictions. District Attorney Krueger will represent the North Carolina Conference of District Attorneys on the Task Force.
The purpose of the Task Force is to study and review cases of inmates who are incarcerated solely for convictions of opioid drug offenses that require active sentences under structured sentencing; to consider how to identify inmates who would be able to successfully reintegrate into society; and to develop and consider options for modifying existing statutes.
District Attorney Krueger also serves on the North Carolina Law Enforcement Opioid Task Force.
President Trump recently declared the opioid crisis a “national health emergency”
