Honeycutt v. United States
United States Supreme Court; Case No. 16-142
Case below 816 F.3d 362 (6th Cir. Mar. 4, 2016).
Joint and several forfeiture liability violates basic principles of sentencing. Joint and several forfeiture liability imposes a de facto criminal fine in contravention of congressional intent. Congress enacted § 853 to deprive defendants of their proceeds from crime. Joint and several forfeiture liability disregards the limits Congress imposed on fines for drug offenders. The Court should construe § 853 to avoid serious constitutional problems.
