Criminal – Sentencing Guidelines – Crack Cocaine Reduction

A defendant who received a 16-percent reduction in his original 2005 sentence for distributing crack cocaine is entitled to a 16-percent reduction when the Alexandria U.S. District Court resentences him in 2008 under the revised sentencing guidelines for crack cocaine.
