Publications: Camp Instead of Prison

Posted: 5/9/2014

Judge Simon found that Mr. Haft's trial counsel had failed to investigate adverse information in the presentence report based on the assumption that Mr. Haft was ineligible for a camp designation by the Bureau of Prisons. He found a reasonable probability that he would have sustained an objection to a serious error in the presentence report and would have made a more specific and detailed recommendation to the BOP.  He ordered a new presentence report and a new sentencing.  The erroneous report was corrected, and Judge Simon issued a new sentencing judgment, on April 16, 2014, in which he made a more specific and detailed recommendation to the BOP that Mr. Haft should be housed at a camp rather than a prison (his original designation).  In response, the BOP designated Mr. Haft to a camp facility rather than the prison to which he had originally been assigned.
