USSC sets agenda for crack amendment retroactivity hearing

Over at its website, the US Sentencing Commission has posted this planned agenda for the public hearing scheduled for November 13 at Georgetown University Law Center concerning whether its amendments reducing the crack guidelines should be applied retroactively to previously sentenced defendants.  The agenda suggests that this USSChearing should be a quite an event, with 18 speakers scheduled to speak (most of whom, I believe, will be advocating retroactivity).

I'm the girlfriend of Keith Martin who is currently
serving 25 years in the Ferderal Prison in
Yazoo City, MS. for crack charges. My issu
es are as follow: Witness(know drug dealers) who are able to
falsely testify to reduce their sentences
and the unequal sentencing of white drug
offenders. Thank You for letting me express
my thoughts.
