What is the federal criminal Holder Amendment?

Soon to be ex Attorney General Eric Holder circulated a memo among the office of the United States Attorney directing that in routine drug cases, including border busts, that the amount of the drugs not be specified in the charges. This way many individuals will not be subject to the harsh mandatory minimums in federal drug cases. For information about the minimum sentences, click here. That means that in cases in which a person does not provide substantial assistance coooperation with the federal government or they are not eligible for safety valve, primarily because of a prior criminal record, they can still escape the long obligatory sentences. At the Law Offices of Russell Babcock we know how to navigate you through the maze of complex federal criminal laws and sentences and to obtain the lowest sentence possible, which means excaping the federal mandatory minimum sentences whenever possible.
