"Today when I think of reentry court, I am reminded that nearly every offender sentenced to time in custody will return to the community from whence they came. And thus, every sentencing court is in fact, a reentry court, creating a pathway for the offender’s reentry into society." -Jeff Tauber

Philly Federal Reentry Court Provides Legal Services

A report distributed to Philadelphia federal district judges in December of 2010 on the Supervision to Aid Re-entry (“STAR”) program, described the regional reentry court as a highly successful model for the federal judiciary. Among the reports special points of interest was an innovative use of legal interns to provide legal services to federal probation participants (there is no parole, only probation in the federal system):

  • A continued  partnership with the Philadelphia Bar Association and local law schools, which provide participants with free legal assistance for issues such as credit repair, traffic court, license restoration, child custody, and business development assistance.
  • A successful credit restoration project, enabling dozens of participants to correct errors and deficiencies in their credit history
