Great primer on federal compassionate release
Over at the Ninth Circuit Blog, Steve Sady has this terrific post discussing the history and recent developments surrounding the federal rules governing so-called compassionate release. (Basic information is available here from FAAM.) Steve full post is a must-read; he thoughtfully details the ins and outs of "a tragic story with a hopeful ending."

http://or.fd.org/symp2.final%20for%20pdf.pdf this is Steve Sady's 2008 addtion to the compassionate release delema, as well as the other gross BOP abuses. I am a person that has a friend that has been locked up for 18 years. I did not know about his situation for the first 16 years. He is old and ill, and is the poster child for the "compassionate release" I have been fighting in federal court for this man.
