Nationally Recognized Federal Sentencing Lawyer Representing Clients Nationwide and Abroad
Alan Ellis’ Federal Prison Guidebook explains how to ensure that your client gets into the best possible prison and is released at the earliest opportunity.
Although it is Bureau of Prisons policy to place an individual in the least restrictive facility within 500 miles of the inmate’s release residence, many inmates end up far from their families in harsher conditions than necessary. It doesn’t have to be that way.
You can take three steps to ensure that your clients do their time in the best possible facilities. First, learn how the BOP classifies its facilities, and the characteristics of each type of facility. Second, understand how the BOP decides what type of prison is appropriate. Finally, learn how to increase the odds of a favorable placement.
For assistance with all three steps, turn to Alan Ellis’ Federal Prison Guidebook.
The 2018 edition contains new and updated information on a wide variety of prison placement, sentencing, and programs.
