Federal Bureau of Prisonsńˇ╗ Compassionate Release Program
Sarah E. Batipps (ed)
In the Sentencing Reform Act of 1984, Congress authorized the Dir. of the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) to request that a federal judge reduce an inmateńˇ╗s sentence for ńˇýextraordinary and compellingńˇŁ circumstances. Under the statute, the request can be based on either medical or non-medical conditions that could not reasonably have been foreseen by the judge at the time of sentencing. The Bureau of Prisons (BOP) has issued regulations and a Program Statement entitled ńˇýcompassionate releaseńˇŁ to implement this authority. This report assessed the BOPńˇ╗s compassionate release program, including whether it provides cost savings or other benefits to the BOP. It found that an effectively managed compassionate release program would result in cost savings for the BOP, as well as assist the BOP in managing its continually growing inmate population and the significant capacity challenges it is facing. However, the existing BOP compassionate release program has been poorly managed and implemented inconsistently. Includes recommendations for improvement. This is a print on demand report.
