Third Circuit -- USA v. Albert Savani


Deft was sentenced to under mandatory minimums due to cooperation.  Guidelines ranges for the relevant offenses subsequently were lowered.  Deft can move for review of sentence under statute permitting such review where the "applicable guidelines range" has changed, as the mandatory minimum is not the "guidelines" range.

Concurrence: No need to invoke lenity.

Circuit split flagged.

Compiled by D.E. Frydrychowski, who is, not incidentally, not giving you legal advice.
