Since it is a federal conviction, the calculation is fairly easy. If he maintains a good record in prison, then he will serve 85% of that sentence. So, his effective sentence will be about two years and six months. Deduct how long he was in jail prior to the sentencing, and that is how much longer he will have in prison.

Federal sentences are usually calculated this way: the person sentenced has to serve 85% of the sentence. In this case, MrXXX received a three year sentence, so he would have to do a little over 2 1/2 years. If that answers your question, please click on the accept button. Thanks!

Also, there is a three year probation reported, although I am not sure that is accurate. Usually, there is a period of what we call "supervised release" which is similar to probation or parole, in that the person, after release from prison, has to report to and abide by rules given them by United States Probation. If they violate their supervised release, then they can be returned to prison.
