Florida Today ran Reggie's opinion column on releasing at-risk inmates who could be affected by COVID-19.

Florida law 947.149 allows the FCOR to release a state inmate who is permanently incapacitated or terminally ill. A permanently incapacitated inmate is an inmate who has a condition caused by injury, disease, or illness, which to a reasonable degree of medical certainty, renders the inmate permanently and irreversibly physically incapacitated to the extent that the inmate does not constitute a danger to herself or himself or others. A terminally ill inmate is an inmate who has a condition caused by injury, disease, or illness, which, to a reasonable degree of medical certainty, renders the inmate terminally ill to the extent that there can be no recovery and death is imminent, so that the inmate does not constitute a danger to herself or himself or others.

Reggie is an AV Preeminent®-rated attorney by Martindale-Hubbell, achieving the rating agency’s highest marks for both competency and ethics.
