Compassionate Release is a highly sought-after program for many inmates facing longer sentences, who may be advancing in age, suffering from medical conditions, or who have served over 50% of their current sentence. If you are granted Compassionate Release, then you are immediately eligible for release from incarceration.

If you think you may qualify, you need to retain a strong law firm who has an array of experience with sentence reduction. You can then consult with your lawyer about meeting the necessary requirements for the Compassionate Release Program, which are:

  • Age 65 and older.
  • Suffer from chronic or serious medical conditions related to the aging process.
  • Experiencing deteriorating mental or physical health that substantially diminishes their ability
  • to function in a correctional facility.
  • Conventional treatment promises no substantial improvement to their mental or physical
  • Have served at least 50% of their sentence.

Review by the Warden

Each submission for release, after being filed by your law firm, must be reviewed and approved by the warden. The evaluation includes a variety of factors, such as “the nature and circumstances of the inmate’s offense and criminal history, the inmate’s conduct in prison, the inmate’s release plans, and whether release would undermine the deterrent effect of the punishment.” *

Your law firm will likely wish to gather a variety of supporting documentation to file alongside your submission, such as records, details, medical history, family history, case history, psychological history, among many others.
