Drug Tampering Conviction Bars BOP Good Time Award

Tampering with a consumer product with reckless disregard for risk of death or bodily harm could reasonably be determined to be a "crime of violence" precluding early release for completion of a drug rehabilitation program. The petitioner so precluded from the benefits of a drug program is a former registered nurse who removed Demerol from syringes to feed her addiction and replaced it with saline solution to conceal her crime. See: Cunningham v. Scibana, 119 F.Supp.2d 584 (S.D.W.Va. 2000).
