Welcome to Prison Talk. It may depend on the wording of the judgment & commitment order signed by his sentencing judge. It is available on Pacer.gov
https://www.pacer.gov/

The issue is how the bop will classify his sentence; if they decide it is 18 months he will earn 70 days of regular good time. If it is considered to be 8 months instead, zero good time. Most federal prison sentences of less than one year are served day for day, with no half way house time.

He needs to discuss it with his lawyer to learn his options under either scenario.

The way you have described the sentence doesn't compute with how the Sentencing Guidelines are written. I'm wondering if the Guideline in the Pre-Sentence Report was 18 months and the judge provided a variance to make the number 8 months. When your husband shows up on the BOP.gov under inmate, the day he finishes his commitment will be on the internet.

Since the OP shows her location as Washington, DC there is a strong chance the sentencing was in DC court rather than federal court.

I was locked up in FCC Petersburg, VA, with many folks who were convicted in DC City Courts. They were eligible for early release under federal parole, while federal prisoners were not.

The alternative, the DC Jail, is much nastier than just about any federal prison I was in, and the main DC Half Way House has many reported problems as well.

There are 4 halfway houses in DC and they are all awful and corrupt. I've been to all of them.

And the answer is he will be out on or before the date you posted from the BoP site.

Nobody can give you a concrete answer because nobody can predict how much, if any, parole he will be granted.

If it was me, I'd file a cop out with my bop unit team asking those specific questions. When will I be released from bop custody to begin serving my one day supervised release sentence? (one day on SR is definitely preferable to lifetime SR),

If you don't agree with their computation, file an inmate grievance. If you don't object, formally, in writing on a grievance form, nothing will ever be done.

Only the bop, which has the keys, will tell him when he will be released. The "release date" on the bop inmate locator is the day they plan to release him now, but it is never over until he comes home. Since many bop prisoners are kept locked up after their sentence was finished, some for years according to the US Dept. of Justice's Inspector General, trusting their computation arithmetic can be a major mistake.

Have him get the details from his unit team, then do the computation yourself to determine if you agree with what the bop has decided, and if not, file grievances to get it corrected. If he doesn't formally object to their mistakes, nobody else will and he will be released from prison when the bop decides to unlock the front door.

Here's what the NY Times reported last year. "WASHINGTON — More than 4,300 federal inmates were kept in prison beyond their scheduled release dates from 2009 to 2014 — some of them for an extra year or more, according to a report released on Tuesday that highlighted wide confusion in the prison system."
