“Federal Compassionate Release”
Presented by Federal Public Defenders Christopher Jenkins & Rachel Braver

Message from the Presenters:

“The First Step Act of 2018 brought about a number of changes to federal criminal law and procedure. One of those changes has given federal prisoners a new avenue to seek modification of their sentence by requesting that the district court, rather than the Bureau of Prisons, adjudicate requests for compassionate release from confinement. This has coincided with the rise of COVID-19 as a special concern for incarcerated persons. This seminar, presented by the Federal Public Defender’s Office in conjunction with the Corpus Christi Bar Association, will provide a ‘quick and dirty’ introduction to pursuing motions for compassionate release.”

Registration required, [Click HERE].
