Though only mid-week, another long list of new COVID-influenced federal sentence reductions using § 3582(c)(1)(A)

I hope readers are not yet getting bored of my listing of COVID-influenced grants of federal sentence reductions using § 3582(c)(1)(A).  I have recently made a habit of assembling these lists on the weekends (see recent examples here and here).  But last week I put together this post with more than two dozen grants on a Friday because there were so many new sentence reductions being reported on Westlaw.  And, as this trend continues, I now felt a need to do a mid-week review of recent grants recently appearing on Westlaw.  So:

United States v. Lynn, No. 89-0072-WS, 2020 WL 3229302 (SD Ala. June 15, 2020)

United States v. Liew, No. 11-cr-00573-JSW-1, 2020 WL 3246331 (ND Cal. June 15, 2020)

United States v. Miller, No. 3:15-cr-132-2 (VLB), 2020 WL 3187348 (D Conn. June 15, 2020)

United States v. Head, No. 2:08-cr-00093-KJM-2, 2020 WL 3180149 (ED Cal. June 15, 2020)

United States v. Rivera, No. 3:13-cr-71-1 (VLB), 2020 WL 3186539 (D Conn. June 15, 2020)

 

United States v. Acevedo, No. 18 CR. 365 (LGS), 2020 WL 3182770 (SDNY June 15, 2020)

United States v. Lavy, No. 17-20033-JAR, 2020 WL 3218110 (D Kan. June 15, 2020)

United States v. Patel, No. 3:17cr164 (JBA), 2020 WL 3187980 (D Conn. June 15, 2020)

Segars v. United States, No. 16-20222-3, 2020 WL 3172734 (ED Mich. June 15, 2020)

United States v. Madrigal, No. 5:18-cr-00356-EJD-3, 2020 WL 3188268 (ND Cal. June 15, 2020)

 

United States v. Knox, No. 2:16-cr-00116-MHH-JHE-3, 2020 WL 3207799 (ND Ala. June 15, 2020)

United States v. Reed, No. 12-CR-161 YGR, 2020 WL 3128904 (ND Cal. June 13, 2020)

United States v. Bikundi, No. 14-30-2 (BAH), 2020 WL 3129018 (D D.C. June 12, 2020)

United States v. White, No. 2:17-cr-00198-4, 2020 WL 3244122 (SD W. Va. June 12, 2020)

United States v. Heitman, No. 3:95-CR-0160(4)-G, 2020 WL 3163188 (ND Tex. June 12, 2020)

 

United States v. Fields, No. 2:05-CR-20014-02, 2020 WL 3129056 (WD La. June 11, 2020)

United States v. Halliburton, No. 17-cr-20028, 2020 WL 3100089 (CD Ill.  June 11, 2020)

United States v. DeBartolo, No. 14-016 WES, 2020 WL 3105032 (D R.I. June 11, 2020)

As I have mentioned repeatedly, some rulings do not appear on Westlaw right away and others do not show up at all.  As of this writing (mid-afternoon of June 17), this BOP page on the FIRST STEP Act is reporting 650 total grants of "Compassionate Releases / Reduction in Sentences."  The same BOP page reported less than 150 such grants before the COVID era began, so I think we can now confident state that there have been over 500 federal sentence reductions grants in the just the last three months.  Some of those grants are detailed in some of the posts below, and I am hopeful the US Sentencing Commission or someone else "official" might have a truly comprehensive report on these matters before too long.
