USA V. EDWARDS Crack Cocaine In the district court, Nishay K. Sanan, argued that the narcotics were not crack but rather cocaine base and therefore the 10 year mandatory minimum did not apply. After a hearing with a battle of experts, the district court found that the substance was not crack but rather cocaine base, but still sentenced Edwards to the 10 year mandatory minimum stating that this was a matter of first impression in the 7th Circuit. On appeal, the 7th circuit reversed the district court stating the “all crack in cocaine base but not all cocaine base is crack” therefore the 10 year mandatory minimum was not applicable. On remand, Edwards was sentenced to time served (approximately 15 month).
