MENTAL ILLNESS: OVERLOOKED IN CRIMINAL WHITE-COLLAR CASES

Mental Illness Is Overlooked in White-Collar Cases

Welcome to my video series, INDICTED AND FACING PRISON

My name is Marc Blatstein. In 2006, I, too, was Indicted and convicted of a felony, and losing my medical license almost broke my soul. To call this a life-altering event, at best, is an understatement. With work, I was able to get my license reinstated in full.

My Takeaway: Prison is Temporary.

Providing you with Knowledge and Preparation will help you build back the confidence you’ll need to navigate through these challenging times.

·      Since you’ve heard that the DOJ has been asking questions, it’s more than likely their case against you is mostly complete and has a 98% Conviction Rate.

·      Hiring a legal team doesn’t just mean they have experience; they also need a proven track record of successfully defending cases like yours.

·      The choices you make today – will make a better tomorrow.

Whether or not you believe it was a contributing factor, seeking an ‘expert’s recommendation’ is crucial.

·      Should you need an expert who would be accepted by the court, getting that recommendation from the prosecutor is wise. This would make their attempt to challenge their results as the recommendation was theirs.

·      High-strung white-collar defendants believe they are fine when they may not be.

·      Therefore, getting that second opinion consultation is recommended for their benefit.

·      This may also be when their list of prescriptions comes to light.

·      Due to the high incidence of mental illness in functioning adults, both in and out of prison, addressing this issue now could be a significant mitigating factor.

If you’re already at this point and don’t have the time to wait for my future videos, call me, and we can discuss your situation one-on-one. Once again, my number is 240.888.7778.

FYI: Judges prefer to speak with treating physicians rather than just your experts during the sentencing hearing.

1.  The defendant is exceptionally bright, successful, and highly functioning.

2.  Highly skilled and motivated, they work long hours for acceptance (to feel better about themselves – and not be considered a failure), money, and privileges.

·      Was there a traumatic backstory that you uncovered through their history and Personal Narrative?

3.  Is the defendant an obsessive-compulsive perfectionist?

4.  Do they suffer from depression and anxiety?

5.  What is their overwhelming desire to be personally and financially successful?

6.  The result could be a generally law-abiding person to engage in inappropriate or illegal behavior.

7.  With a proactive medical consultation, a diagnosis of bipolar disorder can be crucial before the presentence interview.

8.  According to the most recent statistics from the U.S. Sentencing Commission, a mere 6% of inmates were granted downward departures for diminished capacity (U.S.S.G. §5K2.13), despite half of the inmates displaying symptoms of mental health issues. This raises crucial questions about the sensitivity of judges to mental health concerns.

9.  On the other hand, the root of the problem could be the defense counsel, who might not be investing sufficient time in fully exploring their client’s social and psychological history.  –Tess Lopez, Probation Officer.

Climate change is predicted to increase the frequency of potentially hazardous heat conditions across the United States, putting the 2 million incarcerated people at risk for heat-related health conditions. Texas and Florida accounted for 52% of total exposure despite holding 12% of all incarcerated people.

JESSE M. FURMAN, United States District Judge, in UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, -v- GUSTAVO CHAVEZ, … the Metropolitan Detention Center (“MDC”) in Brooklyn — has had its share of problems. In winter 2019, a power outage left inmates without light or heat for a week while a polar vortex swept the East Coast.

Extreme heat can be deadly, or harsh winter weather can result in viruses spreading rapidly due to the proximity of AIC (Adults In Custody).

·      If you have a medical condition that puts you at higher risk, it is important to document this in the PSR, where Compassionate Release through the Second Look Act may become necessary.

·      Climate Change, Extreme Heat in Prisons, and then the cumulative dangerous effect for those taking these medications:

·      Antidepressants (1. SSRIs increase sweating, increasing the risk of dehydration; 2. Tricyclic antidepressants, or TCAs, may decrease sweating, making it harder to cool off),

·      Anticholinergics, CNS Depressants, Heart Meds, Anti-Psychotics, and Insulin.

Playing sports is a therapeutic way to ease the pain of where you are. Just don’t go crazy and get a sports-related injury, as medical care in prison will not be like you’re used to at home.

  • Possible fracture or dislocation could take days – weeks, or longer to get an X-ray (or CT scan or MRI)
  • The Second Opinion could take up to three years, but the BOP is not required to follow its medical specialists’ recommendations.
  • An ankle sprain or hairline fracture (which can’t be seen on an x-ray for approximately two weeks) could, at best, get you Motrin, Tylenol, or Aspirin.
  • Play sports, and just be smart about everything you do in prison.
  • If you get injured and feel you are not getting the basic care, the BOP encourages using The Administrative Remedy Process.

The BOP Formulary.

  1. If your generic medication is listed as available on their formulary, the next step is to verify that it is not listed as Non-Formulary.
  2. If, with further inspection, it is found as Non-Formulary, you will most likely Not Get It – Not Good.
  3. Not Available

·      Your doctors’ notes need to be written in a specific way.

·      Medication Therapeutic Substitution Policy Pages 44 – 47

The Caveat:

•       BOP Policies and Procedures, while documented, only work if they’re implemented or enforced.

•       Here, your Comprehensive PSI won’t guarantee that you will be designated appropriately or receive the necessary Medical Care. Still, it can provide for The Administrative Remedy Process (which the BOP encourages),

…followed by Compassionate Release through the Second Look Act.

·      2nd Opinions: Yes, although 1) this could take three years if allowed, and 2) the BOP Clinical Director for your facility Does Not Have to Follow the specialist’s recommendations.

Long before the Presentence Interview (PSI),

  • Preparation for what is to come includes understanding the Four Levels of Medical Care and providing all relevant information clearly defined before the interview,
  • No matter how insignificant or long-ago the medical care was, it should be seriously considered for inclusion.

They range from

  • CARE LEVEL I (for the healthiest)
  • CARE LEVEL II, similar to a well-staffed Internal Medicine Practice
  • CARE LEVEL IV (those needing inpatient care 24/7/365)
  • CARE LEVEL IIII, outpatient care will suffice for those who do not qualify for 24/7 Nursing.

The Caveat:

  • While documented, BOP Policies and Procedures only work if implemented or enforced.

Compassionate Release

•       2nd Opinions, Yest, although 1) this could take three years if allowed, and 2) the BOP Clinical Director for your facility Does Not Have to Follow the specialist’s recommendations.

·      The BOP also determines whether a defendant has any medical or mental healthcare needs that will affect their placement. To the extent it will happen, continuity of care in the BOP depends on comprehensive preparation for the Presentence Interview, followed by verifying the final Presentence Report for accuracy.

·      This cannot be over-emphasized.

Security Levels

Minimum Camps

Minimum security institutions known as Camps have dormitory housing, a relatively low staff-to-inmate ratio, and limited or no perimeter fencing. These institutions are work- and program-oriented, and many are located adjacent to larger institutions or on military bases, where inmates help serve the labor needs of the larger institution or base.

This video compares BOP Federal Prison Camps (FPC) to Satellite Camps attached to higher-security facilities. Brief Overview: Satellite Camps usually have more FSA programs, while FPCs may have less stress overall as the guards do not have to deal with the adjacent higher-security facility and don’t need to rotate between the two.

There are two types of Minimum Camps.

·     Federal Prison Camps (FPC): These are free-standing with limited fencing and more freedom of movement.

·     Satellite Camps: These are associated with higher security institutions. Many BOP institutions have a small, minimum-security camp adjacent to the main facility. These camps, often called Satellite Prison Camps (SPC), provide inmate labor to the main institution and off-site work programs. FCI Memphis has a non-adjacent camp that serves similar needs.

Low

Low-security Federal Correctional Institutions (FCI) have double-fenced perimeters, mostly dormitory or cubicle housing, and strong work and program components. The staff-to-inmate ratio in these institutions is higher than in minimum-security facilities.

Medium

Medium-security FCIs (and USPs designated to house medium-security inmates) have strengthened perimeters (often double fences with electronic detection systems), mostly cell-type housing, a wide variety of work and treatment programs, an even higher staff-to-inmate ratio than low-security FCIs, and even greater internal controls.

High

High-security institutions, also known as United States Penitentiaries (USP), have highly secured perimeters (featuring walls or reinforced fences), multiple- and single-occupant cell housing, the highest staff-to-inmate ratio, and close control of inmate movement.

Federal Correctional Complexes (FCC)

Correctional Complexes: Several BOP institutions belong to Federal Correctional Complexes (FCC). At FCC, institutions with different missions and security levels are located in close proximity to one another. FCC increases efficiency by sharing services, enables staff to gain experience at institutions of many security levels, and enhances emergency preparedness by having additional resources within close proximity.

Administrative

Administrative facilities are institutions with special missions, such as the detention of pretrial offenders, the treatment of inmates with serious or chronic medical problems, or the containment of extremely dangerous, violent, or escape-prone inmates. Administrative facilities include:

Metropolitan Correctional Centers (MCC),

Metropolitan Detention Centers (MDC),

Federal Detention Centers (FDC), and

Federal Medical Centers (FMC):

  • Carswell FMC,
  • Devens FMC,
  • Fort Worth FMC,
  • Lexington FMC,
  • Rochester FMC,

Federal Transfer Center (FTC), the

Medical Center for Federal Prisoners (MCFP) and the

Administrative-Maximum (ADX) U.S. Penitentiary.

Except for the ADX, administrative facilities can hold inmates in all security categories.

Federal Satellite Low

Federal Satellite Low Security: FCI Elkton and FCI Jesup each have a small Federal Satellite Low Security (FSL) facility adjacent to the main institution. FCI La Tuna has a low-security facility affiliated with, but not adjacent to, the main institution.

Secure Female

Secure Female Facility: Currently, the BOP has one Secure Female Facility (SFF) unit (located at USP Hazelton, WV) designed to house female inmates. Programming at the SFF promotes personal growth by addressing the unique needs of this population.

The importance of Public Safety Factors and Management Variables cannot be overstated.

·        “Points,” “Leader–Organizer” when you weren’t can place you in a higher security level. This level results in increased restrictions on movement while in prison.

·      Practically, this governs your freedom of movement around the institution.

·      Whether to house the inmate in a high-security U.S. Penitentiary (USP), a Medium or Low-Security Federal Correctional Institution (FCI), or a Minimum-Security Prison camp (which can be either Free-Standing or a Satellite Camp which is adjacent to a higher-secure institution).
