Historic Sentencing Commission Vote June 30 June 28, 2011

Posted by FairSentencing in : Current News , trackback

Here’s the latest FAMM update:

Earlier this month, the U.S. Sentencing Commission held a hearing about whether to make retroactive last year’s changes to crack cocaine sentencing guidelines.  This Thursday, June 30th, we will find out what they’ve decided!

You are welcome to attend the vote, though space is limited. If you cannot be there, don’t despair:  We will tweet about the Commission’s decision on the FAMM Foundation Twitter feed, post a report on Facebook and of course provide full reports on our blog, SentenceSpeak and our website, www.famm.org.

If you can attend, here are the details:

Thurgood Marshall Federal Judiciary Building
Ground floor
One Columbus Circle, N.E.
Washington, D.C. 20002

1:00 p.m. (although you should be there by 12:30 p.m. to ensure entrance)

If you plan to come to D.C. from out of town, please let us know by contacting Courtney in our office at intern1@famm.org. While you are here we will be happy to help you set up appointments with your representative and senators.
