Chapter Summary

The Sentencing Reform Act of 1984 made significant changes in the original legislation with respect to the manner in which the foreign sentences of transferring Americans are executed in the United States; additional amendments to the Act were enacted in 1987 and 1988. This chapter talks about the requirements for the transfer of American prisoners to take place, the responsibility of the Attorney general for implementing prisoner transfer treaties, the transfer procedures, and the execution of the transferred sentence in the United States. The offender may seek review of his parole determination by appealing to the Parole Commission's National Appeals Board pursuant to 28 C.F.R. Section 2.26, and may seek habeas corpus review of the National Appeals Board's decision in the district in which he is confined.
