Best Prison Release Paths in these COVID days

FFUP is spreading the word about three new release paths for prisoners at risk due to the covic pandemic. Here is the link to PDF file: 

Brief description of each:

PATHWAYS TO RELEASE DURING COVID DAYS

Here are the latest best mechanisms for release due to covid. This will soon go out in a newsletter to 200 people. ( minimum bulk non profit mailing). Please send FFUP names of people who you think should get this- those vulnerable who might not now get the newsletter. A regular FFUP Bridge of Voices will come out later, again a limited version but all I can do at this time.

What’s here-( individually linked here)

1)for those: 60 or over and have served at least 10 years/ those 65 or over serving 5 years or more/ has health issue and gets an affidavits from doctors verifying illness.

    pages 2 thru 4 have the latest from the DOC and I like to believe a direct result of pressure from our COVID COMPASSION campaign. Evers will not move on releasing those vulnerable but we think directed the DOC to move. For those over 60 this is good, for those with medical conditions, we have in the past found it impossible to get a physician in the DOC to sign an affidavit as to a condition warranting release- hope that has changed .

2) for Old Law Prisoners- extraordinary circumstance which are broadly defined.

Pages 5-6 is the current state of Executive 31, for old law prisoners. The criteria are broad and last in chain of deciders is parole chairman. This has taken years to get recognized. The warden decides if you are parole eligible and gives recommendation. Make sure, if you try this, that John Tate, Parole chair, does get your applications.

3)For all who can show the need- prepared by public defender office, goes directly to sentencing judge. 

pages 6 on is the newest mechanism and I believe the best, (the least complicated )from the public Defenders Office in Madison. PDs have been taking letters from prisoners at different offices around the state. Some help some don’t. Now we have the form and you can apply directly to your sentencing court.

All three are worth a try.
