Case Note: Terminally ill sex offender denied compassionate release because he remains a danger to the community...


In U.S. v. MARK JAMES WILLIAMS, 2022 WL 1422895 (M.D. Fla. May 5, 2022) (Conway, J.), the court denied terminally ill inmate compassionate release finding he remained danger to the community, explaining: "The Court finds that Defendant's serious medical condition would qualify under Subsection A (only) of the Guidelines. The excerpted medical records attached to Defendant's Motion reflect Defendant has a terminal diagnosis of stage IV metastatic Prostate Cancer, diagnosed in January 2020, and a life expectancy of less than 18 months to live; his pain level is currently severe; and he is unable to sleep at night. … For purposes of this Motion, the Court finds that Defendant's terminal medical condition would qualify as an “extraordinary and compelling” reason for release under Subsection (A). However, although a defendant can establish that extraordinary and compelling reasons exist, he is ineligible for release under 18 U.S.C. § 3582(c)(1)(A) if he is a danger to the community. … The Court finds that Defendant presents a danger to others, specifically children. … The Court cannot overlook Defendant's recidivism in possession of child pornography, his failure to register as a sex offender, and his inability to accept responsibility for his crimes and lack of remorse or conscious acknowledgement of the impact to the victims in the thousands of images of child pornography that he had in his possession—on at least two separate occasions—even after imprisonment for the first conviction.”
