You need to remember that time off for completing RDAP is only if you have not been convicted of a "serious offense" you can still participate in RDAP just no time off

5.33 years (64 months) times 47 days per year equals 250 days of regular good time. Any additional time off of his sentence and/or extra time in a half way house will not be computed until he successfully completes RDAP.

His estimated release date shown on the bop inmate locator will be the date 64 months, minus 250 days, from his first day in bop custody. That date will not change until after he gets any extra good time because of RDAP. Any time in a HWH will happen before his bop release date, whenever that actually ends up being.

His end of sentence/start of supervised release date will be 18 months minus 70 or 71 days of earned good time. The last few months of his remaining sentence may be spent in a half way house rather than in a prison, but he will still be in bop custody there.

47 days a year of good time, times 9 1/3 years, or 438 days, or about 14+ months off. If he is eligible to take the residential drug program RDAP (and receive extra time off for completing it, not everyone does), he could possibly qualify for an additional 12 month sentence reduction. He can ask his case manager about that.

It depends on the amount of extra time off (if any) for completing RDAP. 120 months, minus 470 days, about 15 1/2 months of regular good time (starting on the first day he was locked up anywhere on the federal charges, which should count the 3 months in jail), minus the RDAP time off (up to one year). Time in a half way house begins prior to his "end of sentence date".

Default Husband just began a 46 month Sen.

This calculation is right on the numbers. The only other consideration would be any jail credit.

Hope this helps some.

I'm new to this forum and my husband just turned himself in today for a 46month sentence.. How much time will he have to serve total? He told me about a drug program where he could get his time reduced..

Welcome to Prison Talk and to the federal forums. His estimated release date, which will appear on the bop inmate locator after it is computed by the sentence computation unit in Texas, should be 33 months, minus 129 days of good time, starting on June 10, 2015. A fairly common problem when in bop custody involves getting credit for all pre-sentencing time spent in the custody of the US Marshals (regardless of where they put him). If the bop's date is wrong, he will need to file an inmate grievance to get it corrected.

He will earn 70 days of good time off of his 18 month sentence. That will be his end of bop sentence date (18 months minus 70 days, or 15 + months from when he arrives in bop custody). His unit team will decide if, and how much of his remaining sentence will be served in prison, and how much time he can spend living in a half way house prior to his release from bop custody (to supervised release monitored by US Probation). He can find out from his prison counselor or case manager. HWH can be up to one year, but 10% of his sentence is more likely.

You really give hope I really appreciate that a lot! You must have been in prison or something that give you this knowledge. Any courses he can take to get out early? Would he qualify for rdap? Thanks!!

The only federal prison program that awards additional good time off is RDAP, and an 18 month bop sentence is not long enough for him to take the program.

Exclamation Please help

Hello all i am new to this site and my boyfriend just got sentenced about two weeks ago he hasn't yet been keyed into the federal system bc the us marshals says that they are waiting on judgement from the court before they can designate him...my question is he was sentenced to 70 months he's been in since april 26 of this year and is now in a holding facility in farmville, VA what would be the length of time that he has to do before hwh and/or he comes completely home? he has a possession of firearm by cf charge so gtc is our only hope since he won't be eligible for the rdap program thank you all for your responses

Welcome to Prison Talk. He will receive credit for all of the time since he was locked up on April 26, so that will be the first day of his 70 month sentence. He will earn 274 days of regular good time (almost 9 months) calculated at 47 days credit for each 12 months of his sentence. When his estimated release date appears on the bop inmate locator it should be the date 70 months, minus 274 days, starting on April 26. Be sure to confirm that they computed his release date correctly, since mistakes are not uncommon.

That is his end of prison sentence/start of supervised release date. Half way house happens before then, because he is still in bop custody at the HWH and/or home confinement. His bop case manager will determine how much HWH time he will get. The second chance act allows every eligible inmate to get a maximum of one year, but 10% of his sentence is more likely. Once his case manager submits a proposed HWH date to the HWH they choose, it still requires an available HWH bed on that date, or his HWH reporting date may be delayed until one is available.

It may take awhile longer before he is designated, and transported to his "home" prison. The bop designation office in Grand Prairie, Texas will decide where he will be sent.

April 2016 plus 61 months (70 minus 9) gets it to May 2021 (approximately), but he could go to a half way house in 2020.

And you calculated the 7 months of jail credit with all that as well? It seems like 2020 is so far away 😢

If his jail time started in April, then credit for it is included. As soon as he is added to the bop inmate locator, you will find out when they think his end of sentence date is.

Seems like he should be going to the halfway house by March/April 2017. He should be making sure that the PO is doing the home visit.
