Still more local coverage of crack sentence reductions
Continuing the regular drumbeat of local reporting on reduced crack sentences, here are stories from Vermont and West Virgina:
I assume that the US Sentencing Commission and the Department of Justice are trying to keep track of reduced crack sentences, but I am not sure either will report their data publicly anytime soon. I wonder if anyone else is trying to keep a head-count of exactly how many offenders have secured early release under the new crack rules.

I've heard back and forth about the crack amendment = a full resentencing/reopened sentencing hearing.
I volunteer at a federal prison and have had this questioned REPEATEDLY asked, so can someone please clarify.

No such case has been filed - or if it has, it hasn't gotten far enough yet to gain any attention. For CERTAIN there has been no decision since March 3 allowing a full resentencing. (And just a thought - if you're volunteering in a federal prison, maybe you shouldn't be giving legal advice to prisoners?)
