Sentencing Commission Promulgates Guidelines Amendments for November 2011
Last week the Sentencing Commission issued this press release announcing a new crop of Guidelines amendments. Absent Congressional action, the amendments will take effect on November 1, 2011. There's some good and some bad for defendants, with changes affecting illegal reentry, firearms, supervised release, mitigating role, health care fraud, and more. The Sentencing Resource Counsel Project has prepared a helpful summary of the amendments, which have not yet been posted on the Commission's website.
