Sentencing

Sentencing

This hour-long radio show examines the areas where a consensus is growing on the problems in federal drug laws, and it explains the areas where drug laws seem to be administered fairly. It includes the story of how a person could be sentenced to 19 years for drug possession, even if police found no drugs, drug money, residue, or paraphernalia, even if it's a first offense. Judges give their opinions of the drug sentencing laws. The show ends with a night in drug court.
