Pensamientos de Federal Criminal Defense Lawyer Russell Babcock sobre la Reducción de la Sentencias Federales en Casos de Drogas

Thoughts of a federal defender on federal reduction sentencing

There are few positive developments that I have seen in the criminal law over the past decades. More people are being sent to jail for petty and narcotic drug offenses at both the state and federal level.
Finally, there is a very positive development: the proposed reduction in base level for all federal drug offenses.

The most important part of this pending law is that those who are already in federal custody may apply for this reduction.
The bad news is that the granting of a petition will be discretionary. Also, the calculation of who qualifies for the reduction is complex depending on the nature of the charge, the release date, the way the original sentence was structured, and conduct while in prison.
You will probably not receive a free attorney for this reduction. You must bring the petition yourself, and you only have one chance to reduce your sentence. Sentences may be reduced by as much as two years or more.

In the Law Offices of Russell S. Babcock, I have devoted a special department to federal sentence reductions in all drug cases including methamphetamine, cocaine, heroin, and marijuana. Call today for your free consultation at (619) 531-0887. Do not take a chance that this law will change or be repealed in the future; call today to talk with one of the federal sentence reduction experts. We also handle pardons and executive clemency cases.
