George Georgiou is a Canadian citizen currently serving a 25 year prison term in an American jail for alleged stock market crimes he has unwaveringly maintained he did not commit. The private facility where George is currently housed (Moshannon Valley Correctional Centre) has recently seen an outbreak and surge in Covid cases.
A Compassionate Release motion will be filed in the next few weeks to the new Judge appointed to George’s case. Under the First Step Act of 2018, the Judge can now reduce George’s sentence so he can return home to Canada to be with his children. The safety risks of American jails compared to Canada are extreme (see US vs. Canada analysis).
