RE: Compassionate Release Petition of Carl Buggs # 05691-027
Honorable James T. Moody:

Dear Judge Moody,

On behalf of Carl L. Buggs Jr.,  We are respectfully requesting that you, your honor, "Grant" the motion to reduce his sentence for extraordinary and compelling circumstances Pursuant to the
First Step Act of 2018.

Carl has been incarcerated for the past 22 years, and during this period he has utilized his time wisely. Carl has compiled a remarkable record of rehabilitation showing that, if released, he is no danger to the public. Carl received his G.E.D, and there after began tutoring other inmates helping them to attain their G.E.D. He attended Illinois Community College while in Pekin Federal Correctional Institution. Among many things he has done and continue to do Carl has participated and completed several rehabilitative programs such as:Crossroads Youth Outreach, Rational Thinking, Dental Assistant Apprenticeship. 

We truly believe if granted the opportunity Carl would prosper in freedom. He has accepted and learned during his sentence, and "ANY" reduction and mercy the judicial system can show him now will be a blessing to both him and his family. With the skills he has acquired and our support,we are confident Carl can establish a career and be a productive member of society. He has been restored. Carl is a man of God, and We believe in the God of a Second Chance. Every one of us have made choices we are not proud of, but we thank God for giving Carl another chance to do better. We ask that your Honorable Court shows mercy on him and do the same.

With the passage of the First Step Act, Congress concluded that the punishments arising from stacking provisions of 18 U.S.C. 924(c) were "TOO" punitive and unfair. Although Congress chose to foreclose one avenue for relief does not mean it chose to foreclose all means of redressing draconian sentences imposed under 924(c), and nothing about Congress's decision to pass prospective-only changes to 924(c) prevents this Court from re-sentencing Carl under the Compassionate Release Statue on the basis of individualized extraordinary and compelling reasons.

Thank you for hearing our plea Judge Moody, and please "Grant" Carl's motion for a reduction in sentence for Extraordinary and Compelling Circumstances Pursuant to the First Step Act of 2018.
