Hello I have a question :( (concerning Federal sentencing) If someone is convicted as a non violent first offender with no criminal background and is currently on "home arrest" for an internet crime such as downloading/distribution of child pornography and is supposed to get between 5-6yrs in the federal system when convicted, Is there any chance of requesting the time being done at a prision camp? Or concering this length of time, when would someone be considered eligable for a prision camp? Does "home arrest" time go towards your sentence time? Lastly, do prision camps offer a better chance to aquire "good time" or do they offer more. I think the Federal is about 54 days per "sentence year" right? Sorry for all these questions but they are important.

I am going to a FPC for a internet related crime although mine is much worse than child porn IMO as I was charged with terrorism and taken down hard by the FBI, San Francisco PD and Dept of Homeland Securty heh even the U.S. Naval Investigative Servce was there.

You should get a camp depending on the circumstances... I wouldnt talk about your crime to much though when I was housed at the federal court house pedos were getting there ass kicked by marshalls.

Camps follow the same "good time" as the prisons...54 days per year. I've no idea if you will be eligible, but it is likely. My guy is in one for fraud and it's not too bad. Like bkerensa said above, I'd try to just do your time as quietly as possible. Good luck.
