Executive Clemency Initiative
Five Possible Requirements
Update:  September 25, 2014 – Attorney General Holder Resigns

Our team has begun organization of resources for expediting the clemency petitions to be filed under the new Executive Clemency Initiative. Two Board Certified Criminal Trial Lawyers and a number of other attorneys and paralegals are standing by in offices near the Coleman Federal Prison in Florida.
We believe most inmates will eventually receive some attention. However, our plan is to quickly gather needed information, and expedite the completion of the case file for federal authorities to review. Remember there are Five Possible Requirements and the initiative is limited. 

Five Requirements for Clemency Eligibility

• Are currently serving a federal sentence in prison and, by operation of law, likely would have received a substantially lower sentence if convicted of the same offense(s) today; 
• Are non-violent, low-level offenders without significant ties to large-scale criminal organizations, gangs, or cartels; 
• Have served at least 10 years of their sentence; 
• Do not have a significant criminal history; 
• Have demonstrated good conduct in prison; and 
• Have no history of violence prior to or during their current term of imprisonment.

    Federal Executive Clemency
    10 Questions to Ask

    We spent considerable time last week assembling our team to begin expediting the clemency petitions to be filed under the new Executive Clemency Initiative. Our team includes two Board Certified Criminal trial Lawyers and a number of other attorneys and paralegals. Our sense is that while most inmates will eventually receive some attention, our goal will be to quickly gather needed information, and to expedite the completion of the case file for federal authorities to evaluate. We have collected and listed below the basic information needed to get started and the specific questions we believe will need answers.

    Ten Facts Needed for Executive Clemency Review
    To begin the process, our clemency attorneys will need the following information:
    • Name – first, last, middle 
    • Date of Birth 
    • District Court Case Number 
    • Bureau of Prisons Facility Location and Address 
    • BOP Register Number 
    • District where sentenced 
    • Projected Release Date 
    • Attorney who represented you at sentencing — please provide name and address if you know it 
    • Attorney(s) who previously represented you in any appeal, habeas proceeding, sentence reduction proceeding, or application for sentence commutation — please provide name and address if you know it. 
    • If you currently have an attorney representing you in any aspect of your federal criminal case including an application for sentence commutation, please provide the attorney’s name, address, and any other contact information if you know it.
    Ten Important Questions on Executive Clemency
    1. For what offense(s) were you convicted for which you are serving your current federal sentence? 
    2. What sentence did the judge originally impose? 
    3. When were you originally sentenced? 
    4. Were you given a longer sentence for possessing or using a weapon?
    5. Was your sentence later changed?
    6. If you answered yes to Question 5, what is your current sentence? 
    7. How much time have you served on your current sentence? 
    8. Are you currently appealing or challenging any part of your conviction or sentence? If you answered yes, is that case pending?
    9. Have you been convicted of any other crimes besides the one(s) for which you are serving your current federal sentence?
    10. Have you received any incident reports while serving your current sentence?

    Federal Clemency Attorney, W.F. “Casey” Ebsary, Jr. was involved with Families Against Minimum Mandatories (FAMM) and efforts to release federal inmates incarcerated on crack cocaine sentences in years gone by. This was a successful project. One of our friend’s children was released and we received a tearful call from a grateful father upon the child’s arrival home.

    “This new and improved approach will make the criteria for clemency recommendation more expansive.  This will allow the Department of Justice and the president to consider requests from a larger field of eligible individuals.” Attorney General Eric Holder April 21, 2014.

    Now Casey has shifted focus to this effort by the United States Attorney General to seek release of other non violent drug offenders. According to the Washington Post, the federal government will now make an  “effort to foster equity in criminal sentencing by considering clemency requests from as many as thousands of federal inmates serving time for drug offenses . . . “

    Attorney General of the United States

    Federal Clemency Lawyer http://www.centrallaw.com/practice-areas/tampa-criminal-attorney/clemency-petitions-pardons/ in Tampa, Florida is a Board Certified Criminal Defense Attorney. Tampa Criminal Defense Lawyer, W.F. “Casey” Ebsary, Jr. can be reached at 813-222-2220. Portions of this News Video were Press Released by the Attorney General Who Does Not Endorse This Lawfirm.

    Transcript:

    “In 2010, President Obama signed the Fair Sentencing Act, reducing unfair disparities in sentences imposed on people for offenses involving different forms of cocaine.

    “But there are still too many people in federal prison who were sentenced under the old regime – and who, as a result, will have to spend far more time in prison than they would if sentenced today for exactly the same crime.

    “This is simply not right.

    “Legislation pending in Congress would help address these types of cases.  In the meantime, President Obama took a sensible step towards addressing this situation by granting commutations last December to eight men and women who had each served more than 15 years in prison for crack cocaine offenses.  For two of these individuals, it was the first conviction they’d ever received – yet, due to mandatory minimum guidelines that were considered severe at the time, and are profoundly out of date today – they and four others received life sentences.

    “These stories illustrate the vital role that the clemency process can play in America’s justice system.

    “The White House has indicated it wants to consider additional clemency applications, to restore a degree of justice, fairness, and proportionality for deserving individuals who do not pose a threat to public safety.  The Justice Department is committed to recommending as many qualified applicants as possible for reduced sentences.

    “Later this week, the deputy attorney general will announce new criteria that the department will consider when recommending applications for the President’s review.  This new and improved approach will make the criteria for clemency recommendation more expansive.  This will allow the Department of Justice and the president to consider requests from a larger field of eligible individuals.

    “Once these reforms go into effect, we expect to receive thousands of additional applications for clemency.  And we at the Department of Justice will meet this need by assigning potentially dozens of lawyers – with backgrounds in both prosecution and defense – to review applications and provide the rigorous scrutiny that all clemency applications require.

    “As a society, we pay much too high a price whenever our system fails to deliver the just outcomes necessary to deter and punish crime, to keep us safe, and to ensure that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.

    “Our expanded clemency application process will aid in this effort.  And it will advance the aims of our innovative new Smart on Crime initiative – to strengthen the criminal justice system, promote public safety and deliver on the promise of equal justice under law.”
