#AceNewsReport – Nov.01: Judge To Hear Ex-House Speaker Sal DiMasi’s Bid For Early Release From Prison// CBS Boston

DiMasi has been battling cancer while serving nearly five years of an eight-year prison sentence for corruption.

The U.S. Bureau of Prisons and federal prosecutors have recommended that he be released early. DiMasi has been treated for cancer twice while in prison.

U.S. District Judge Mark Wolf will hold a hearing on Tuesday.

In a written order, Wolf says several key details are missing from the recommendation, including specifics on DiMasi’s current medical condition. Wolf says the request could potentially raise questions of preferential treatment for the 71-year-old Boston Democrat because of his previous political stature.

DiMasi was convicted of steering state contracts to a software firm in exchange for $65,000.
