Default Make First Step Act 924c Clarification Retroactive

As many of you may know, the First Step Act was signed in December, 2018. In the First Step Act, clarification was made about the sentencing enhancement 924c. People who were sentenced with 924c enhancements were given astronomical sentences! The clarification states that people should have only received those large additions to their sentence if they served a previous sentence and re-offended. This is NOT how judges were using this enhancement.

In the First Step Act, it was stated that they sentenced people wrong and that they were never going to use the enhancement in the incorrect way again. The problem is: THEY DID NOT APPLY THIS CLARIFICATION RETROACTIVELY! That means that anyone who was sentenced on December 20, 2018 or before would have MUCH GREATER sentences than people who were sentenced on December 21, 2018 or after. This, obviously, makes NO sense! They need to right their wrong!

Please sign the petition to have the clarification to 924c applied retroactively.
