Getting a federal sentence reduced can be challenging, but there are several legal strategies and options that may help. This article will discuss approaches including retroactive law changes, compassionate release, executive clemency, and participation in recidivism-reduction programs.
One of the best ways to get a federal sentence reduced is through retroactive changes in sentencing laws and guidelines. Here are some examples:
However, Congress and the Commission do not always make reforms fully retroactive. Advocates recommend Congress routinely make sentencing changes retroactive to fix outdated penalties.
Compassionate release allows courts to reduce sentences for “extraordinary and compelling reasons”. The First Step Act expanded eligibility. Reasons can include:
Courts may also consider factors like rehabilitation and nonretroactive law changes. File a petition through the facility warden first, though courts can grant motions if the warden denies or delays.
The president can grant clemency through a pardon (removing civil disabilities of a conviction) or commutation (shortening a prison sentence) . Petitions are reviewed by the Office of the Pardon Attorney. Clemency can provide relief even when law changes are not retroactive.
President Obama granted over 1,700 clemency petitions, focusing on excessive drug sentences. Advocates recommend presidents use clemency more broadly to reduce excessive sentences.
While reducing a federal sentence is difficult, options like retroactive law changes, compassionate release, executive clemency, and recidivism reduction programs offer hope. Consult with an experienced federal criminal defense attorney to pursue strategies tailored to your situation. With persistence and a legal advocate on your side, you may find a path to an earlier release.
