Moore v. U.S., 07-10689

Sentence for possession of cocaine base with intent to distribute is reversed and the case remanded where the district court's statements during sentencing showed that it did not think it had the discretion, which was later upheld by the Supreme Court in Kimbrough v. U.S., to reject the Guidelines' crack-to-powder cocaine sentencing ratio.
