United States v. R.D.
Client, a returning citizen after a lifetime in prison, was charged with violating his supervised release for not reporting correctly to the Office of U.S. Probation after his return to the community. Ms. Carmichael, after investigating the case and tirelessly contacting multiple agencies on his behalf, was able to get him released on bond at his first detention hearing, whereupon he returned to the local shelter. CLient then began, with guidance, to work on a plan to comply with the onerous requirements of his supervision. By the time the violation hearing rolled around, Ms. Harris was able to convince the Court to terminate his supervision, and as a penalty impose only the few days he had already served in jail. Now, client will be able to go on with his life a free man, free from any reporting requirements, no longer on supervision. He has paid his debt to society and is happy to continue on with the support of his family and friends.
