Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Every year a rumor goes around the federal prison system that some law was changed reducing sentences for federal inmates, but the fact is the law has not changed. The federal law still requires the inmate to serve 85% minimum of their sentence before being eligible for parole/release.
