Description
"Federal Prisoner's Legal Guide" provides guidance for those who are either facing Federal criminal prosecution or who have been convicted and are serving a sentence. This must-read book offers practical advice as well as an overview of the most important legal issues. This guide fills a need. Few people are familiar with the ins and outs of being prosecuted for a Federal crime. Any criminal defendant or prisoner will find crucial information here, and no other book on the market provides this need-to-know information in such comprehensive and scholarly detail. Throughout this book, the author covers pretrial issues such as plea agreements, discovery, trial preparation, sentencing guidelines and issues, and methods of reducing incarceration time through the residential drug abuse program, the First Step Act, and other provisions. The latter part of the book focuses on prisoner's civil rights and how a prisoner can prevent abuses by the Bureau of Prisons, as well as legal guidelines for appeals and other post-conviction remedies such as habeas corpus. Finally, the author provides information on successfully completing supervised release and tips for ending supervised release early. The author is a trained lawyer who used 31 months in Federal prison to help other inmates with their legal needs and to prepare and file the brief in his own appeal.
About the author
Jehu Hand was a highly successful and respected corporate lawyer for decades when he found himself the target of a Federal prosecution as the result of pro bono work. Convicted after trial, he used his 31 months in Federal prison to help other inmates with their appeals and prison litigation, to research and write this book, to write his own appeal brief, and to leave prison almost two years early. He lives in California with his wife and children. His appeal is still pending.
