Default Federal 5k1.1

Does anyone know about this? 5K1.1 my step son is in county and is waiting to go to federal court on drug charges. He is looking at time in federal prison. His lawyer is offering him a deal to cooperate with the court to help convict others. I am not familiar with this. Can anyone help me understand.

Here's what the US Sentencing Commission says about 5K1.1.

Google 5K1.1 to learn much more about it.

What kind of prison time is he looking at and more specifically, what custody classification? If he’s looking at time in a medium security prison, there is only a handful of mediums that are gonna allow a “snitch” on the yard. Most lows and camps don’t care about that kind of stuff at all.
