U.S. v. Jackson; U.S. v. Harris

Harris and Jackson sought discretionary reductions of their sentences pursuant to § 404 of the First Step Act. The District Courts denied relief, and on appeal, the primary issue was § 404 eligibility. The Court of the Third Circuit vacated and remanded in United States v. Harris and reversed and remanded in United States v. Jackson. In both cases, the Court determined the defendants were eligible for § 404 by looking to their statutes of conviction.
