More great local coverage of crack retroactivity realities

Local newspapers continue to provide interesting and valuable coverage of the local realities of implementing the new federal sentencing guidelines for crack offenses.  Here are links to notable new stories from Arizona and Florida and South Carolina:

  • From the Arizona Republic here, "Cocaine, prison, racial bias, reform: Sentencing rules seek fairness in crack cases"
  • From the Ocala Star-Banner here, "Family hopes for early release of man imprisioned on crack cocaine charges"
  • From the Greenville News here, "Penalty gap closing for powder and crack cocaine"
