Good News Re. Crack--Powder Disparity!



Yesterday, DOJ came out in support of eliminating the disparity between crack and powder cocaine sentences. Lanny Breuer, Assistant Attorney General, spoke before the Senate Subcommittee on Crime and Drugs.

There are, it seems, four proposals in the House now to address cocaine sentencing. Nothing's in the Senate yet.

Lots of material here for sentencing memos. Buzz seems to be that changes will be retroactive, but you can't be too careful! Let's bring it up now!
