NPR coverage of cocaine developments
NPR yesterday broadcast these two interesting pieces on All Things Considered about the war on cocaine:
Here is the set-up for the second piece, which has a sentencing focus:
Nerika Jenkins was working as a home health care nurse and raising her daughter when she was arrested. She had delivered crack for her drug-dealer boyfriend more than once and was paid for it. She was sentenced to 19 years in a federal penitentiary — twice the time of others in her boyfriend's drug circle. Why? She didn't plead guilty, and her lawyer told her not to cooperate.
