Seller gets less time than users and Judge Turk frets over guidelines

As reported here in the Roanoke Times, Judge Turk of the W.D. Va. expressed consternation over the outcome whereby a seller of heroin received less time under the federal sentencing guidelines than did some of the users who bought the drug.

Judge Turk is no fan of the sentencing guidelines, nor is any federal judge I've ever heard on the subject.
