News Note: What are the odds of getting compassionate release? When we consider moving for compassionate release on a clients' behalf we (and the clients!) understandably want to know, generally, the odds of prevailing. Obviously, every case is different, but there have been discernible trends. Below is the most recent consolidated data we could find, accurate as of last September. As you can see, when COVID first hit, in March-May 2021, a fairly large percentage of applications were granted -- some 30-40%. As applications increased, you can see how the percentage of grants began to drop, to 15-20%. Then, as more inmates were vaccinated and the initial panic subsided, grants decreased further, to around 11%. Though we haven't seen the most recent figures, anecdotally the percentage of grants appears to have held steady, or perhaps have fallen a bit more.



Death Watch (Note: The BOP press website announces BOP COVID-related deaths here.) The BOP has identified the death, on May 22, 2022, of William Russell Mills, 65, of FMC Fort Worth, raising the inmate death toll to 296. Eleven of the inmates died while on home confinement. Staff deaths remain at 7.
