Your Clearwater Drug Defense Attorney recommends the following actions:
- The minimum mandatory sentence laws should either be abolished or be applicable only for violent crimes.
- By law prosecutors should be given less discretion in making charging decisions that force plea agreements and high sentences because of the fear that other charges will be added to an indictment or charging information.
- Our Judges need to be given more discretion to reduce minimum mandatory sentences.
- The Federal Bureau of Prisons should be given more incentives and direction to allow old prisoners, sick prisoners and nonviolent drug prisoners out of prison where there is little likelihood of recidivism without the need for Court Hearings unless either party objects to a reduction of sentence.
