Default Lynne Stewart died

The BoP granted her compassionate release about 3 years ago - she served 4 years on her 10 year federal sentence.

She was a good attorney who made a mistake and paid for it dearly - and got screwed over by the federal government and then got screwed over by the BOP in trying to block her compassionate release. Condolences to her family.

I thought she got compassionate release? How long were they road-blocking her?

She did get compassionate release, she got it before serving even 1/2 her sentence and she lived longer after her release than anybody thought.

Sadly, I know many people - some in person, some from here - that would have been thrilled to get what she got.
