Default FAMM, WA Lawyers’ Committee, NACDL: Compassionate Release Clearinghouse

FAMM, Washington Lawyers’ Committee, NACDL Launch Compassionate Release Clearinghouse

First Step Act paves the way for a massive pro bono effort to represent sick, dying, and elderly prisoners in court.
WASHINGTON – Thousands of sick, dying, and elderly federal prisoners who are eligible for early release will now have access to free legal representation in court through the newly established Compassionate Release Clearinghouse. The clearinghouse, a collaborative pro bono effort between FAMM, the Washington Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs, and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL), is designed to match qualified prisoners with legal counsel should they need to fight a compassionate release denial or unanswered request in court.

FAMM has a good summary of the First Step Compassionate Release process, if you need to try to use the Court approach.
