Christian Hansen, FMC Lexington: Released: 30th March
FedCURE was contacted in December 2005 by the daughter of Christian
Hansen. Mr. Hansen who was 79
years old and incarcerated since October 2002 at FCI Ft. Dix, New Jersey, was
in constant pain, could not walk, and was in dire need of medical
treatment. FedCURE negotiated a
transfer to FMC Lexington in January of 2006.
FedCURE continued to assist the family with questions concerning health
care and compassionate release requirements with the BOP throughout 2006 and
the beginning of 2007. Even
though the BOP would not honor compassionate release due to their dispute over
the terminal requirement, the family continued to persevere by contacting
legislators and the sentencing judge with a plea of mercy and a quote of the
guidelines not being honored by the BOP.
Christian Hansen was released by court order of the sentencing judge on
March 30, 2007, at the age of 80 years. He would have had 4 1/2 more years to
complete a 9 year mandatory sentence.
He traveled to his home in New Jersey on March 31, 2007 and has had 24
hr. in-home nursing care. Just
recently, he went to the hospital to fix multiple problems which developed and
worsened during his incarceration.
He is now making excellent progress towards recovery.
