Will retired judges tackle sentencing problem?

Re "To reduce prison crowding, judges must push for sentencing reform" (Viewpoints, Sept. 24): I am writing to agree with the forceful, to the point and convincing argument put forth by retired Judge Ronald Tochterman.

Sentencing must be addressed, and who better to do it than the people that deal with it every day, our judges.

Judge Tochterman states that something "bold" needs to be done. The question is, will our retired judges, as Judge Tochterman suggests, take the time, get together, and start the dialogue? I believe they could make a significant difference.

It seems to me that Judge Tochterman is ready to tackle the problem. Are there others who will join him?
