The 30-year prison term given to former Kansas City pharmacist Robert Courtney has been thrown out by the United States Supreme Court. The justices have told a federal appears court to reconsider his term. Courtney is the druggist who diluted cancer-fighting drugs for dozens of clients. The Supreme Court says appeals courts must determine if sentences such as Courtney’s are reasonable. The order is a follow-up to an earlier ruling in which the Supreme Court ruled that mandatory federal sentencing guidelines are unconstitutional.
