Excessive Sentence Project - Information

for Family Members and Loved Ones of People in Federal Prison

The Excessive Sentence Project recruits and trains pro bono attorneys to file compassionate release motions on behalf of individuals in federal prison whose sentences are too long, either because they would receive a much lower sentences today due to intervening changes in the law or because their original sentence was simply unjust.  If you think your loved one might qualify, please complete our questionnaire.  Unfortunately, we cannot help everyone, but we are doing everything we can.
