Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only. Please feel free to ignore any phone service request, the expert does not send those unless asked by customer and they are sent by the site automatically.

Actually, under sentencing guidelines used in Federal cases, nothing you mentioned would be grounds for sentence reduction. You have mentioned your health conditions and the amputation which would qualify you for sentencing to a federal prison healthcare facility so they can properly treat you. As far as your alcohol addiction, that is no real basis for moving you as they have AA programs in the federal prisons and counseling programs for you to attend.

So at this point, asking your attorney to seek to get you sent to a medical facility is really your only option here.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback by clicking on the 5 stars at the top of your page, as the experts are not employees of the site and get no credit for spending time with customers unless they leave positive feedback. Thank you.
