Valuable recent reviews of federal prision program realities

I often refer people to Alan Ellis, a past president of NACDL who specializesin prison matters and postconviction remedies, whenever I am asked a hard question about federal prison programs. Alan is a co-author of the Federal Prison Guidebook, and he recently sent me two of his recent writings about federal prison programs for posting here.

Alan's recent article in The Champion concerns the federal RDAP program an is titled "Changes to the BOP Residential Drug Abuse Program."  It can be downloded here: Download Changes_to_the_BOP_RDAP

Alan's recent article in Criminal Justice concerns federal prison medical facilities and is titled "BOP Health Care: What You (and Your Clients) Need to Know."  It can be downlaoded here:  Download ABA- BOP Healthcare 3

I wish to comment and need help on getting someone out of federal prison sooner. There is killer who get out sooner than someone who had a few c.p. pics. The law is too harsh on someone who is a retired military vet and never did anything to a child.
Please send me any help.
thank you,

The law needs to be changed. Murderers are in and out sooner than someone who had a couple of c.p. pics on computer. My husband is in federal prison and he is a retired vet and was an alcoholic. He loves his kids and mine and we are good. He did not deserve almost 5 years. Please, any help ...
thank you,
