The U.S. Sentencing Commission has recently taken a significant step, long urged by the NACDL and numerous allied organizations in the criminal justice community, by cutting federal prison terms for drug offenses. This reform retroactively impacts some 50,000 people currently incarcerated in the federal prison system for drug offenses. Many could see a reduction of their sentences by an average of about two years.
The court will begin granting motions for sentence reductions under 18 U.S.C. § 3582(c)(2), on November 1, 2014.
