Eligibility is based upon the law in effect on the date the offense was committed. As such, one needs to know the offense of record and the date of the offense to know for certain the minimum amount of time required in order to be eligible for parole consideration...for most new receives, however, you are generally looking at a quarter of the sentence (inclusive of good time credits) for non-aggravated conduct and half of the sentence flat (with a two year minimum) on aggravated or 3g conduct. Five year minimum required to be considered for parole on a drug offense committed in a drug-free zone.
Approval rates tend to average 36 to 38 percent when viewed across the board...

Some places say that there isn't parole in the federal system and then others do, so basically it just depends on the offense? If his offense was committed in July 2011 and he was sentenced in June 2013 what would that mean?
The possibility of parole on a Federal sentence hasn't existed since 1984 though there can be some folks that have been in that long and so might still be eligible and I'm sure there remain some on supervision that were paroled prior to the discontinuation. As it stands, Federal good time works to shorten a sentence and the earliest a person might be released on a Federal sentence would be at 85% of their sentence which would happen if they earn the maximum possible amount of good time.
