Miami Herald: Flood of inmates, citing coronavirus, seek pandemic paroles — but process is slow

Reggie was interviewed by the Miami Herald.

Reggie Garcia, a Tallahassee lawyer who advocates on behalf of state inmates, said the corrections department has the “power right now under current law” to fit elderly and infirm inmates under the designation because they are at risk of dying from COVID-19.

“My suggestion is that DOC utilize and interpret the power with a broader eye and with a goal toward releasing people who only have six to 12 months left in their sentence anyway,” Garcia said.

Reggie is an AV Preeminent®-rated attorney by Martindale-Hubbell, achieving the rating agency’s highest marks for both competency and ethics.
An elite group of approximately 10 percent of all attorneys holds an AV Preeminent Rating, a designation trusted worldwide by buyers and referrers of legal services.

The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely upon advertisements.
