Hi PBMoreland - I moved these posts to our Federal general talk instead of having it in the McReary lockdown thread

Would you have a link/information where you got this news from so that we could have it posted in this thread?

For those who are interested in the origin of the recalculation of sentences, the First Step Act has settled the long time question of 47 vs 54 days off per year of sentence by going with the higher number (This unfortunately had been litigated to the lower number over the years.) But passing a law isn't enough for bureaucracy and it's taken this long for the BOP to get their act together and rewrite the policy. To my knowledge, no classification will receive priority over any other. Anyone nearing the completion of a long sentence will want to pay special attention to the calculations, and make sure they are not serving a day longer than necessary because of BOP inertia. Steve Sady, a Federal Public Defender in Oregon, has already successfully taken this to court and won and I'm sure there are others. Every day counts.
