McCree v. Sherrod

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS


November 7, 2007

BRUCE EDWARD MCCREE, PETITIONER,
v.
W.A. SHERROD, RESPONDENT.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Murphy, District Judge

MEMORANDUM AND ORDER

Petitioner brings this habeas corpus action pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241. In this action, Petitioner challenges the manner in which the Bureau of Prisons interprets 18 U.S.C. § 3624(b) to calculate good conduct credit. However, the Seventh Circuit has upheld the Bureau's method of calculating good conduct credit. White v. Scibana, 390 F.3d 997, 1003 (7th Cir. 2004). See also Pacheco-Camacho v. Hood, 272 F.3d 1266 (9th Cir. 2001).

Therefore, the petition for writ of habeas corpus is DENIED, and this action is DISMISSED with prejudice.

IT IS SO ORDERED.

G. Patrick Murphy United States District Judge
