Case Note: Grandma has dementia, grandpa has cancer, defendant has 5 months remaining on sentence, so judge grants CR...

In U.S. v. Ronald Paris Riles, 2021 WL 2328436 (D. Minn. June 8, 2021) (Magnuson, J.), the court finds defendant's proximity to release date and desire to care for an ailing grandmother is extraordinary and compelling, explaining: "To date, Riles has served all but five months of his sentence. He is currently incarcerated at the Federal Correctional Institution in Milan, Michigan (“FCI Milan”), but he is scheduled for release to a halfway house in a matter of days, on June 22, 2021. His sentence expires fully on November 17, 2021. … Riles asks for release because his 91-year-old grandmother suffers from dementia and her only caregiver, Riles's stepfather, is battling cancer. He also asks the Court to take into consideration the harsh confinement conditions he faced during his incarceration at an institution that was particularly hard-hit by the pandemic, FCI Fort Dix in New Jersey. Riles was housed at FCI Fort Dix until December 2020. … The sentence the Court imposed was a long one and Riles has served nearly all of it. He has persuasively argued that his family should not be punished further for his misdeeds and given the extremely short time remaining on his sentence, the Court agrees. The § 3553(a) factors warrant a reduction in Riles's sentence to time served.”

Death Watch: The BOP has announced no new fatalities. The inmate death toll remains at 238. Five of these inmates died while on home confinement. Staff fatalities remain at 4.
