DONTSENDUSBACK.ORG was formed by and for people at risk of being sent back, their families, loved ones, and supporters, to gather and share information about staying out in our communities. We discuss mobilization efforts, petitions, and tips to make sure we stay safe and outside to avoid getting sent back for technical violations. We also network to offer support and assistance to help people managing difficulties with their halfway houses or probation officers supervising their home confinement.
In light of the recent news regarding the Biden administration's unwillingness to grant clemency to the 4,000 people currently on home confinement who have been behaving themselves and rebuilding their lives as responsible, rehabilitated, law-abiding citizens, and the Department of Justice's refusal to rescind the Trump Administration's memorandum declaring that people who are not within the standard BOP time frames for home confinement (six months or ten percent, whichever is less) DONTSENDUSBACK.ORG has taken initiative to coordinate assistance with motions for compassionate release and clemency requests. If you do not already have your own private legal counsel and would like assistance in your request, we can put you in touch with that assistance.
In order to help us help you most efficiently and make your case as strong as possible, we suggest you collect the following documentation to support your request, whether that be for a motion for compassionate release through your judge or clemency through the Department of Justice.
You may be wondering "am I a good candidate for compassionate release or clemency?" or you may be thinking "there's no way my judge will grant me a compassionate release!" We can tell you that with the changes coming where the Delta variant of covid has taken hold, resulting in illness and even death in vaccinated individuals, many judges have become more open to these requests. Your individual situation may vary, but it's best to discuss this with competent and informed legal counsel before assuming anything. If your out date is later than July 1st 2022, please let us assist you with information gathering to see if this is something applicable to you. Any earlier than that will unfortunately take too long to wind through the courts to be of any significant value.
If you aren't sure of your out date, you can look on the Federal Bureau of Prison's Inmate Locator to find out.
