6,000 federal inmates released– states affected

CrimeinAmerica#2
The US Sentencing Commission modified its guidelines affecting 46,000 federal inmates with drug distribution charges to be released (after judicial review) approximately two years early with 6,000 being released now throughout the country.
The breakdown of the 6,000 by state of release is below.
Approximately 25 percent of those released are not US citizens and will be deported.
Federal judges reviewed all applications for a sentence reduction and denied many due to public safety considerations.
The average sentence reduction was 18 percent.
