The First Step Act continues to make progress within the U.S. Congress with bipartisan support. The bill contains a number of reforms to criminal sentencing guidelines and seeks to enforce existing rules that the Federal Bureau of Prisons has failed to observe. A prominent reform within the legislation would apply to prisoners in Kentucky and around the country who were convicted of crack cocaine offenses prior to 2010. If passed, the new law could allow people with long sentences to petition for early release.
Police employ many strategies for catching drunk drivers. For this reason, you need to be extremely careful any time you consume alcohol. While the best way to avoid a DUI arrest is to never drink and drive, this isn't always the approach people take.
Police in a Kentucky town have reported that two men were taken into custody on narcotics possession and trafficking charges on the morning of Nov. 3 at the site of a motor vehicle accident that closed down the southbound lanes of Interstate 65 for several hours. Officers say that they approached the men because they were acting in a suspicious manner. Witnesses are said to have told the officers that as well.
