Some of the newspaper coverage of now effective crack retroactivity

Though the USSC's official website still doesn't have any official notice that its new crack guidelines are now officially retroactive (background here), the traditional print media has lots of crack coverage.  Here are just a few links:

  • From the AP here, "Drug Sentencing Guidelines Take Effect"
  • From the Richmond Times Dispatch here, "Crack offenders released early"
  • From USA Today here, "Bill Clinton admits 'regret' on crack cocaine sentencing"
  • From the Washington Times here, "Inmate releases begin under new guidelines"
