United States v. Kidd, No. 07-CR-798 (JBW), 2009 WL 2226486 (E.D.N.Y. June 5, 2009)
Kidd pled guilty to a heroin offense, for which she faced an advisory Guidelines range of imprisonment of between 41 and 51 months. But she cooperated with the Government "at some risk to herself," and therefore earned a non-Guidelines sentence of five years probation. A reminder of the power of cooperation.
