US v. Reevey, 10-1812

By FindLaw Staff on January 19, 2011 2:37 PM

Sentencing challenges to convictions for crack cocaine related offenses

US v. Reevey, 10-1812, concerned a challenge to the district court's refusal to impose a sentence below the statutory mandatory prison term of five years, in a consolidated appeal of defendants' sentences for their crack cocaine related offenses.  In affirming the sentences, the court held that the Fair Sentencing Act of 2010 may not be retroactively applied to authorize the district court to impose a sentence below the prescribed mandatory minimum prison term in effect at the time the defendants were sentenced.
