Default Supervised Pretrial release

My husband keeps hearing that his supervised pretrial release time should be applied to his sentence, but our lawyers says only probation time can. How do I found out and help my husband get out a little sooner?

If his case is federal
He is going to do 85% of his time...
If he qualifies for certain classes he may be able to get a little more time off...
If he wants his pretrial release time taken off thats not going to happen.
maybe he can ask the lawyer if he could get taken into custody and wait in jail for his trial to start that'll knock some time off...

I would listen to the lawyers, hon... They've done this a million times and know better than any of us. Hang in there!
