CASE ENTRY

United States v. Charles

Man serves 21 years of 35-year sentence for nonviolent drug offense, is released early based on new sentencing guideline. He comports himself admirably for the two years he’s on supervised release (as he did during his incarceration). But prosecutors appeal and win reversal of his sentence reduction. Sixth Circuit: Which is the correct legal outcome. “Executive clemency provides [him] another avenue for relief.” (Click herefor Kim Kardashian’s take.)
