The Sentencing Commission voted unanimously to adjust the Drug Quantity Table down by 2 levels.
This amendment to the guidelines will be submitted to Congress by May 1, 2013. Barring Congressiona l action, it will take effect November 1, 2014.
Today's vote should be used to argue for a variance starting today. And remember, Attorney General Holder has instructed U.S. Attorneys "not to object if defendants in court seek to have the newly proposed guidelines applied to them during sentencing."
We will send an update on other proposed amendments soon.
