    Default Amendment to change the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines -during the Commission's 2018 Guideline Amendment

    Amendment to change the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines -during the Commission's 2018 Guideline Amendment cycle.

    I received a message from my boyfriend, who's at the FCI Oakdale, Louisiana I'd like to share:

    "There is a proposed amendment to the sentencing guidelines that needs your support. Go to

    www.prisology.org/action

    and put your name and address at the bottom. But in addition, we need to find a way to spread this as far and wide as possible. The organization wants 50,000 people attached to it. I have already started directing guys in here on how to get the word out. If we can get enough people to support the guideline change it will be the biggest support ever for a change and they have to hear us. There are some forums that you have come across that you can post the info on and that should only take a few minutes to post it and tell them to send out emails to everyone they know. This amendment will help get their loved ones home earlier. It covers all guideline ranges."

    Text from the website of prisology: "The U.S. Sentencing Commission is currently seeking public comment on what its priorities should be for the 2018 Guideline amendment cycle."

    If you hear a call and you would like to support this action, - please take a minute to let your voice be heard!

    Thank you!

    Bloody addicts and dealers again. Dealers should be hung. Might just as well put a revolving door on prisons. If the system want to free up space, they should looking into lifers that don't need to be locked up for life. And prob people off deathrows have less chance of going back to prison. Bloody ridiculous and annoying.

    If you would have continue reading you would know that the new Amendment is meant for all criminal history cases.

    Quote of Amendment:

    "Prisology's proposed sentencing table would replace current Guideline ranges, across all criminal history catgeories, with the Guideline range called for by the offense level two levels lower."

    "In addition, this change would eliminate from the Guidelines a sentencing range of life imprisonment for first time offenders. It would also eliminate "life - life" Guideline ranges. While the Guidelines should continue to allow for life sentences in appropriate cases, the Guidelines should never dictate that the only sentence in a given case should be life imprisonment."
