YOUR PA LAWYER FOR COMPASSIONATE RELEASE
In response to the global pandemic caused by the novel Coronavirus or COVID 19, by way of the CARES Act, and systemic changes created by the First Step Act and other forms of criminal justice reform, many new opportunities have been created for prisoners to drastically reduce their sentences. Compassionate Release permits sick inmates to be released from prison early if specific requirements are met. The requirements are laid out in a Pennsylvania statute that allows an inmate’s sentencing judge to grant early release upon review of a properly filed motion meeting the requirements of the law, according to the Pennsylvania Institutional Law Project.
§ 3582 COVID-19 Compassionate Release
Do you have a friend or loved one who is currently serving a sentence of incarceration in the state or federal system? Or perhaps someone who is awaiting trial and currently in custody and who was previously unable to get bail? The Hughes firm may be able to help.
The number of courts that have granted motions for compassionate release is growing. These motions are granted based on when “extraordinary and compelling circumstances” exist where defendant’s show a particularly vulnerability to COVID-19 while incarcerated.
