The release date on the bop web page is his year + 1 day sentence, minus the 47 days of good time he will earn. If his sentence was one year instead, he would have gotten zero time off for good behavior. It is possible that he could be sent to a half way house a month or two before his release date, but he needs to ask his unit team about that.

Yes maximum possible good time is figured into the expected release date. Any HWH time is not, so that will happen before.

If he is eligible to take the residential drug abuse program, RDAP, and is also eligible to receive extra time off when he successfully completes it, he could earn an additional year off of his sentence. That is the only bop program that can shorten a sentence.

130 months will earn 509 days of good time at 47 days per year of the sentence. If the proposed law passes to make the bop award 54 days good time (the amount the current law already calls for), he would receive an additional 10.8 weeks.

RDAP, offered during the last 3 years of a sentence, can result in up to an additional one year off of a sentence of 37 months or longer.

Evening fbopnomore,

Can you calculate a federal 60 month sentence for me? He has been in a detention center as of 08/16/13 and sentence date was 01/30/2014 (5 mo. 14 days jail credit?). I'm thinking November 2017? Can you also give me a calculation minus the good time?

Appreciated!

WXP; The maximum amount of good time he will earn is 47 days times 25 years, 1175 days off, or about 3 years 2 1/2 months of his 300 month sentence . With that (as long as he hasn't lost any good time or if he earned any extra time off for completing RDAP) his release date should be about 21 years 9 1/2 months from when he was first locked up on the pending charges.

Got it! Thanks! I wonder if his surrender date is the day he was arrested or the day he was sentenced? That's what confuses me. His federal 60 months starts the day he was sentenced?

His time starts on the day he was first locked up on the same case that resulted in his 60 month sentence. That's one sentence I am very familiar with (too familiar actually). He will earn 235 days of good time, around 7.8 months.

I was sent to a half way house for the last 3 1/2 months of my remaining sentence, and spent about half of that living at home on home confinement. The amount of HWH time will be determined by his case manager. He should be due 6 months HWH, his 10% date, but could possibly receive even more now that the Second Chance Act allows the bop to award up to one year HWH to inmates. I too was due 6 months, but as you can see, things don't always work out the way they are supposed to in the bop.

His expected release date on the bop inmate locator should be 52.2 months from the first day he was locked up. It will include maximum good time, but not HWH, which will occur before his release date. He will still be in bop custody at the HWH/HC, just in the Community Corrections wing. If there is an error in his computation, he needs to file an inmate grievance to have it corrected. It is not uncommon to have mistakes made over the amount of time spent incarcerated prior to sentencing.

He is not eligible for HWH. He is being deported immediately after release from FBOP.

He says his lawyer told him 46 months with good time/credit (he can't remember exact number of months). Uggh. I'm not good with math as you can see I'm pretty sure I am off on the good time.

He hasn't been transferred out of the detention center yet, any day now hopefully. But I wanted to get a head start on his release date year.

NEVER MIND! 12/2017 should be release date, it's allllllllll making sense now! lol
