Federal Sentencing Tips

Sep

COVID -19 Newsletter

This newsletter contains a memo we prepared with information about legal programs your clients may want to pursue to reduce their sentences or at least spend the remainder of their sentences at home rather than in a Bureau of Prisons (BOP) facility due to the current pandemic. These types of relief have traditionally been hard to obtain, but there are steps you and/or your clients can take to start the process of qualifying.

Further, over the past several weeks, the BOP has issued its own internal memoranda and litigation has prompted varied responses by BOP staff and government attorneys.

Finally, the newsletter contains an update on the spread of the coronavirus within BOP facilities.
