The Federal Bureau of Prisons permits certain elderly prisoners to seek early release due to their advancing age.

Elderly Offender Release Petition

As with compassionate release petitions, the Federal Bureau of Prisons does permit certain elderly prisoners to seek early release due to their advancing age, and Legislation covering this provision is expected to change as a number of organizations push for change to help alleviate the problem of prison overcrowding and the soaring costs of medical care many elderly prisoners require by releasing those elderly prisoners who no longer pose a threat to society and are at a low risk to reoffend.

Currently, such petitions are rarely granted, however we can educate you and your family on the program parameters and handle the research, drafting, and submission of such petitions. If the petition is denied, we can handle an appeal through the administrative remedy program.
