July 28, 2011
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, Chief Judge:
Now before this court is defendant Brandon McNeese's motion for reduction of sentence (Doc. 38). Defendant asks for a retroactive reduction of his sentence pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3582(c)(2). The United States Sentencing Commission has reduced the disparity between sentencing recommendations for powder cocaine and crack cocaine offenses and the retroactive application of these guidelines is to take effect November 1, 2011, unless Congress steps in to prevent the action.
Pursuant to this Court's Administrative Order 137, the Federal Public Defender for the Southern District of Illinois is appointed to represent the defendant regarding his motion, and this matter shall be automatically stayed until November 1, 2011.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
