Was present at a recent sentencing before Judge Hellerstein where he sentenced a defendant with serious medical issues to a period of home confinement equal to the low end of the guidelines imprisonment range. Though outraged by the offense (various false statements to a bank to maintain a substantial line of credit) he recognized that the BOP would not likely deal effectively and speedily with likely medical emergencies (the client had several previous heart attacks). Usually courts reflexively conclude the BOP can deal with any medical condition -- which is total b.s.
