Federal Compassionate Release Resource Library

Welcome to NACDL’s Federal Compassionate Release Resource Library. The documents found on this page are provided to assist NACDL members and volunteer attorneys with resources for compassionate release motions written and filed on behalf of incarcerated individuals. 

Only NACDL members may access the Federal Compassionate Release Resource Library. If you are not a member, join today.

Note: Documents in the Library are meant as a guide. NACDL does not guarantee the research, legal authority, or quotes in these pleadings. They come from various jurisdictions and may contain law not applicable to your jurisdiction. Additionally, the controlling law may have changed since these documents were drafted and/or cases may have been reversed or overruled. You should therefore check to ensure the law you cite in any pleading is current. Finally, you should tailor these documents to the unique facts of your case.

Please consult the rules of your jurisdiction, including local rules, to determine the proper title of the filing, filing deadlines, required content and certificates, and proper methods of service.
