Finally, after a long struggle and many years of painstaking talks, research, and documentation, on August 13, 2013 the new Program Statement for the Compassionate Release Program was introduced and is now official. If an inmate is granted Compassionate Release under the new criteria and expanded guidelines, he or she will be eligible for immediate release from incarceration.
The additional inmate-friendly, criteria added to the new Compassionate Release Program include criteria based on inmate medical circumstances; criteria based on non-medical circumstances for elderly inmates; criteria based on non-medical circumstances in which there has been the death or incapacitation of the family member caregiver of an inmate’s child; and criteria based on non-medical circumstances in which the spouse or registered partner of an inmate has become incapacitated.
Yet one of the biggest changes occurs for elderly inmates with medical conditions. An elderly inmate who is 65 years old or over and suffers from chronic or serious medical conditions related to the aging process may qualify.
Additionally, a 65-year old inmate who experiences deteriorating mental or physical health that substantially diminished their ability to function in a correctional facility may qualify, especially if conventional treatment promises no substantial improvement to their mental or physical condition.
Also, elderly inmates age 65 or older who have served the greater of 10 years or 75% of the term of imprisonment to which the inmate was sentenced are now eligible for Compassionate Release and may be released immediately.
Finally, the most recent addition to the Compassionate Release mechanisms of immediate release was in March of 2015 and is called the “New Law” Elderly Inmates Compassionate Release. Inmates sentenced for an offense that occurred on or after November 1, 1987 (e.g., “new law”), who are age 70 years or older and have served 30 years or more of their term of imprisonment are now eligible for Compassionate Release.
These criteria are different from those provided in 18 U.S.C 3582(c)(1)(a)(ii), which states that a court, upon motion of the BOP Director, may reduce a sentence term if it finds that “the defendant is at least 70 years of age, has served at least 30 years in prison, pursuant to a sentence imposed under section 3559(c), for the offense or offenses for which the defendant is currently imprisoned, and a determination has been made by the Director of the Bureau of Prisons that the defendant is not a danger to the safety of any other person or the community, as provided under section 3142(g).”
