Seattle Drug Charges Attorney

As a criminal defense firm with expertise in federal drug charges, The Crowley Law Firm PLLC stays on top of major cases which may relate to clients past and present. In the case of the Fair Sentencing Act of 2010, which reduces sentences that can be given out for crack cocaine offenses, the question is whether those arrested before of the implementation of the Act but sentenced after the Act is before the Supreme Court. That could mean — for those convicted and sentenced in that time frame — a major change in their sentences. 

The two cases can be read about here at the SCOTUS blog.  They are Dorsey v. Unites States and Hill v. United States. The opinion from the Court may be as early as this Thursday.  The Government, in a policy change, decided not to contest the issue so the Court has brought in an amicus attorney to contest granting the retroactive application of the Fair Sentencing Act Of 2010.
