You will earn 200 days of regular good time off of your 51 month sentence at 47 days for each year (about 6 1/2 months). If you qualify for the residential drug program, your sentence is long enough to qualify for up to an additional one year off.

The last part of your sentence can be served in a half way house, or possibly even on home confinement. Your unit team will decide the amount of "community corrections" time they will recommend, but the final 6 months of your sentence could definitely happen.

My husband got sentenced yesterday to 15 years, he's already been locked up for 7 months so i'm guessing that goes towards his time, the judge did say he was eligible for the drug class (so reducing 1 year) and i'm not sure if it's 80 or 85% that he'll do???? So what are we really looking at

In federal, he will earn 47 days of good time times 15, or 705 days off of his sentence. He will receive credit for the 7 months he already served as long as he was being held for the same charges that he was sentenced on. If he earns additional time off for completing the residential drug program (up to one year), that will be in addition to the 705 days.

There is no federal parole, but he could be allowed to serve the last part of his sentence in a half way house, or even on "home confinement".

A 30 month sentence will earn 117 days of good time (2 1/2 years X 47 days per year of good time). Any HWH time will happen before the estimated release date, which will be 30 months, minus 117 days, from when he was locked up.

Are Non US citizens eligible for HWH? I was sentenced to 18 months - to start 5/30/14 - going to a private facility D Ray James in GA. I can't seem to find any info on this.

If you will be the recipient of an ICE detainer at the completion of your prison sentence, there will be no "community corrections" time.

Here is the bop's legal resources guide. Chapter L may answer your questions if you will not be held for deportation.

54 months will earn 211 days of good time (about 7 months off) and you may be eligible to spend up to the last 12 months of your remaining sentence in "community custody" either in a half way house or even living at home on home confinement. If you have a documented addiction problem, you may also qualify to earn additional time off of your sentence by completing the residential drug program (RDAP).

Ask your unit team (counselor, case manager and either unit or camp manager) about both their RDAP and community corrections time recommendations.

so if he has only been there a few months, and it is showing a release date, does that already include the time off his sentence

Yes, it should include his maximum good time. You can confirm it's accuracy yourself, his total sentence starting on the first day he was in federal custody, minus 47 days good time for each year he was sentenced to. If they don't agree, he can file an appeal with his unit team to have it corrected.

Any additional good time he might earn for completing RDAP will not be included in his release date computation until it is actually awarded to him.

Default Recent sentence

Hello, I know this thread hasn't posted in a while. I am a little overwhelmed right now trying to figure things out. I was recently sentenced to 38 months. I have been told I could figure about 15% good time, which would put me around 30.5 months.

Are there options of getting out earlier than that? some have told me with my charges I would only be in a few months and released on a house arrest some have said we could plan on nothing more than 24 months total. Does anyone know or have insight?

You will earn 149 days of good time, approximately 5 months, off of your sentence. You are also eligible to serve up to the last 12 months of your remaining 33 month sentence in community corrections; half way house or home confinement. The bop rarely gives 12 months of CC, so ask your unit team how much time they will recommend in your case.

The only bop program that awards up to an additional one year off of a 38 month sentence is the residential drug abuse program RDAP. To qualify you have to show a recent substance abuse problem. If your PSI report says you had one, that's all you will need. If not, talk to the prison's RDAP counselor to see if there is another way for you to qualify, and what documentation you will need to provide from a pre-prison doctor or substance abuse therapist. Alcohol and prescribed medications, as well as street drugs, can be abused.

The possible negatives are having to successfully complete a 9 month residential program, with lots of rules, and having additional substance restrictions, plus being required to attend SA treatment/meetings, for your entire term of supervised release.

Your sentence is barely long enough for RDAP, so if you decide it is something you want to try for, get started as soon as you are in bop custody.

Hello< I'm new to all of this and I did this to calculate my boyfriends GTC and I used the Excel file and entered the requested information in the grey boxes. It gave a release date of 11/15/16, but I have his documents, which show a release date of 7/9/16. Either way, my question is, what do I do with the 235 days it gave me? Do I subtract that from 60 months (his sentence) to get an estimated early release date?

Yes, 60 months minus 235 days (around 7 2/3 months) should be what is shown on the inmate locator. That is the bop "release from custody date" and also the date when supervised release begins. Any time in community corrections, half way house or even home confinement, will happen before that date and will not be reflected on the inmate locator computation. The only way you can find out how much, if any, CC time will be recommended is by asking the bop unit team.

Any additional time off of a sentence awarded for the successful completion of the residential drug abuse program, RDAP, (up to a maximum of one year is possible on a 60 month sentence), will not appear until after it is actually earned.

OK son just got a 6-month sentence...Federal.
Question: will he be eligible for any good time with only a 6 month sentence?
Question: What credit is State Jail time? 2 for 1 or 3 for 1 or 1 for 1 ?
Question: Is it possible to get into the 1/2 way house program?

Please reply or post if you have good info on this. Thanks

No good time on sentences of one year or less. His sentencing judge is in charge of credit for time served. If he was locked up on the charge he was sentenced under, he should get day for day. HWH or not will be decided by his bop unit team once he arrives in a bop prison.

The 47 days of good time are the 85%. If he isn't sent to a half way house sooner, (his bop case manager can tell him the status of his possible HWH time), he will be released 319 days after his first day in bop custody, or US Marshal custody if he was locked up for the same crime prior to his sentencing. If his sentence had been one year, rather than an extra day, he would have received zero good time, and 100% of his sentence.

Because of the second chance act, he is eligible to serve his entire sentence in a HWH (up to one year) but it is up to the bop to decide how much, if any, HWH they will give him.

Correct, but you may get to spend the end of your sentence in a half way house, or maybe even on home confinement. Ask your unit team.
