Florida, May 02, 2013 - Federal prisons are divided into different security levels. Most white collar and lower level drug offenders are sent to Federal Prison. These minimum security federal prisons typically house inmates who are serving less than some years, do not have a history of violence, and are not considered an escape risk. Sex offenders are not eligible to serve at Federal Prison.
Cooperation is the way to get the must substantial amount of time reduced from your prison sentence. To cooperate, a defendant must provide the Government with what is called substantial assistance. This can be done pre and post sentencing. Usually, or generally the Government will give around a third off someones sentence. But again, time given off can vary a lot, sometimes only 15% and also up to 80% in some cases. You really should consult a professional prison sentence reduction specialist to find out and to assist you in doing this sort of thing. They can walk you through the process, communicate to the Government and or your lawyer and help you get the biggest possible reduction. Lawyers cannot do this service and do not provide this kind of service.
Another one of these ways is called the RDAP, it stands for, Residential Drug Abuse Program. This program is available to a limited selection of people who qualify and meet the strict requirements. You can get up to one year off your prison sentence, however if you have a short sentence to begin with it would most likely be shorter than an year off.
Federal Prison Sentences - There are some other minor sentencing factors that can be submitted to the Judge at the time of sentencing that may result in a reduced sentence, such as, having a family, being married, having health issues, old age, no criminal history and so on. But these usually don't result in the dramatic reduction like cooperation.
There are companies out there that provide prison consultation services that assist in getting you cooperation. They can almost do all the work for you, and avoid you the risk and dangers associated with doing so.
