You still have time to write to the U.S. Sentencing Commission and ask them to ensure that thousands of individuals serving unjustifiably harsh guideline sentences for crack have a chance to benefit from possible sentence reductions, if the amendment goes into effect on Nov. 1.
On May 1, 2007, the United States Sentencing Commission proposed an amendment to the federal sentencing guidelines that, if enacted, will reduce the base offense level for crack offenses by two levels, resulting in shorter sentences for most crack defendants sentenced after November 1, 2007. FAMM supported the Commission's proposed amendment to the crack guidelines and also asked the Commission to make the amendment retroactively applicable to those who were sentenced before November 1, 2007.
