The United States Senate yesterday passed the most significant criminal justice legislation in a generation. After the bill is passed by the House and signed by the President it will dramatically change federal sentencing. The number of mandatory minimum sentences will decrease and some defendants will be entitled to earlier release dates. In addition defendants have a greater chance of being eligible for Safety Valve consideration.
