Presentence Report Service - Dr. M. JBlatstein
Physician Presentence Report Service's Bio:
Criminal Justice / Prison Reform is a large and complicated conversation-a goal we all wish to reach, and that day is always coming tomorrow - but to those facing incarceration, the post guilty verdict process determines 100% of their (and their families) fears and future; and that day is today!
- Most individuals being detained and facing incarceration are those of color, and not the white collar defendants with financial means.
- Once detained, they can be held from days to years, before they ever see a sentencing courtroom.
- For those taking medications or using a medical device at home (ie: CPAP), these challenges still need to be addressed early.
- For those who are medically healthy or have never seen a doctor, someone still needs to be their advocate.
- Most ultimately end up with a Public Defender, and these attorneys while doing their best are over worked and do not have the same time and resources (as private council) to give to their clients.
What we have done is to address and change a small portion of this paradigm.
Current Criminal Justice Challenges:
• Current federal incarceration rates are increasing, mostly affecting people of color.
• After a verdict of guilty, the most important document is the Presentence Report (PSR); a
healthcare, criminal and financial background of the defendant.
• Law Schools do not teach the details of the federal designation or prison placement process,
□ Legal teams, following a verdict of guilty, are limited at best in making qualified prison
placement recommendations to the court.
• Providing qualified prison recommendations to the court before sentencing, taking into account both healthcare needs as well as specific interests the client may have in an occupational trade or higher learning.
• Reduce Recidivism by matching and nurturing the client’s interest in a particular occupational trade or higher education, with appropriate prisons.
* One example lies in: The LastMile,a program started at San Quentin State Prison that teaches inmates how to code. Once released they now have a new chance at life and a career to look forward to.
Providing continuity of medical care by matching the client with prisons that are able to provide the healthcare they need.
• The PSR (Presentence Report) is used by:
□ The judge for sentencing.
□ The BOP (Bureau of Prisons) to designate, or place you in a particular prison.
□ Probation, to supervise you after release.
□ Finally, it then becomes a permanent part of your record.
PPRS Prison Match™;
The only service that "matches" the defendant to a prison based on their;
- Primary 'Matching' Components; without the existence of extenuating circumstances, these appear to make up most of the placement process:
- 1. Individual medical and mental healthcare needs along with medication availability, in order to provide continuity of care.
- 2. Security requirements.
- Secondary 'Matching' Components:
- 1. Accepting Responsibility.
- 2. If applicable: Education (college) aspirations (reducing recidivism).
- 3. If applicable: An existing interest in an occupational trade or apprenticeship training(reducing recidivism).
- 4. FPC v. a Satellite Camp-there is a significant difference.
- 5. Should the client's Public Safety Factor (PSF, page 4)support a reduced security level, it may also help to include this into their PSR.
- 6. Medical and Mental Healthcare; prosthetic's, medications and medical devices: bring with you (if you are self-surrendering), along with all physician's orders that should also be part of your PSR.
- 7. Is a special diet required? Whether religious or medical; appropriated relevant documentation has to included in their PSR.
PPRS Prison Match™ with regard to state prisons provides only the medical portion that may affect the sentencing designation process, but there is no state prison matching at this time.
PPRS Prison Match™, a Presentence Report Service: is best used following a guilty verdict in a federal case, but could be started as soon as the person has initially been detained or indicted.
Are you a religious organization?
Religious organizations provide a natural network of congregations that can become the points of first contact, should a person find themselves facing the possibility of incarceration.
The Role of Religious Organizations:
• Introduce PPRS Prison Match™ to those in need, to help protect both their lives and future.
• You provide the most efficient pathway to accomplish this because:
□ Religious Organizations, combining all denominations dominate the American landscape.
□ Religious Organizations already offer a large number of local facilities that provide personal interactions, support and resources, all within their respective communities.
□ Religious Organizations currently provide a natural network that can become the points of first contact, should a person find themselves facing incarceration
