Under Sessions' Department of Justice, LGBT community worries about hate crime prosecutions
By Terry Carter

The 2009 statute had been used relatively sparingly by the Obama administration, dispelling initial fears that it would be overused. Only 47 people have been prosecuted under the federal law, and 37 were convicted, the AP found, using data from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University. Referrals for prosecution against 300 others did not lead to charges. In at least half of those, cases the investigations found too little evidence or no proof of intent.
