Federal supervised release

CASE LAW UPDATE:  Does defendant get credit on supervised release term for excess incarceration?

Defendant was sentenced to 63 months incarceration.  He served time beyond the 63 months.  The District Court imposed a supervised release term that did not grant him credit for the excess time served.  The Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the District Court’s judgment on the grounds that prior case law foreclosed his argument and that he was not entitled to custody credit of excess incarceration on a term of supervised release.  Affirmed.

United States v. Walker, 18-3414, appealed from the District of Minnesota, per curiam.

Minnesota Criminal Defense Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
