Larry Levine-3

Larry Levine Arrest

Pink Lady Co-Founder Larry Levine is recognized as the most experienced Federal Prison Consultants in the world. Before entering federal custody, Levine was a Private Investigator in the Los Angeles area of Southern California.

In 1998, Levine was arrested by a Federal Organized Crime Task Force and charged with securities fraud, obstruction of justice, racketeering, narcotics trafficking, and possession of automatic weapons.

Levine Helps Inmates While in Custody

After arrest, Levine was denied bail and spent 21 months litigating his charges while held at Los Angeles Metropolitan Detention Center (MDC).

While at MDC Levine helped inmates in their defense by reviewing prosecutorial discovery for inaccuracies and researching Case Law, Indictments, PSR’s and Plea Agreements and provided inmates advice in criminal defense-related strategies and possible sentencing departures.

At sentencing, U.S. District Judge Carlos R. Moreno of the Central District of California sentenced Levine to two 10-year concurrent sentences along with one 5-year concurrent sentence.

After sentencing, Levine served his time in ten, high, medium, low, and minimum-security Federal Correctional Institutions throughout California, Arizona, Texas, Nevada, and Oklahoma and spent his time assisting inmates in filing BOP Administrative Remedies and Habeas Corpus petitions for early release while self-educating himself in Federal Criminal Law.

Levine Files Class Action Lawsuit

While at La Tuna, Levine single-handedly, filed a Federal Class-Action Habeas Corpus Lawsuit in U.S. District Court. He sued the DOJ and Bureau of Prisons, claiming they violated their own policies by sending the Nellis inmates to higher custody. Due to Levine’s actions, the DOJ was forced to act and subsequently shifted hundreds of inmates around the country to conform to Levine’s lawsuit claims.

Levine Forms Prison Consultant Firm

Upon release in April 2007, Levine formed Wall Street Prison Consultants and Pink Lady Prison Consultants with former inmate Holli Coulman.  Working as a team they offer their knowledge, advice and services to Federal Defendants on entering the RDAP program, sentence reductions, prison survival skills, Bureau of Prison Policies and Procedures, and on how to navigate the complex world of the Criminal Justice System to lawyers, pre-trial inmates, and their families.

Levine is a contributor and frequent guest on CNN, HLN, Fox, MSNBC, ABC, and CBS News, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, People Mag., Inside Edition, The BBC, Forbes, VICE, and several other major news organizations providing expert information on federal prison life and the criminal justice system.
