U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is visiting Minnesota to speak to state and local prosecutors.

Sessions has pitched a tough-on-crime mentality as President Donald Trump's pick to lead the Department of Justice. He has ordered top federal prosecutors to pursue the strictest charges that come with the harshest possible sentences in criminal cases.

It's a directive that would likely filter down to local prosecutors assembled in Minneapolis for the National District Attorneys Association meeting.
