U.S. Appeals Court: EARLY RELEASE.

King v. Morrison 231 F.3d 1094 (8th Cir. 2000). A federal inmate petitioned for habeas corpus relief challenging the federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) determination that he was ineligible for a sentence reduction based on his completion of a drug abuse treatment programs. The district court denied relief and the inmate appealed. The appeals court remanded with direction, finding that the application BOP program statement that treated conviction for being a felon in possession of a firearm as a "crime of violence" could not render the inmate ineligible for early release.
