SUPREME COURT BOOKER RULINGS AND COMMENTARY

SENTENCING COMMISSION CRACK RETROACTIVITY AND COMMENTARY

My son is serving a 60 month sentence for cocaine distribution. He was also charged with possesion of a fire arm. Can his sentence be lowered if recent discussions concernig gun enhancement rules are modified.
