Good afternoon,

I believe you are asking about the federal reduction in sentencing? Unfortunately, while legislation keeps getting introduced, it has yet to pass. I think most politicians don't want to appear "soft" on crime by voting yes on laws that reduce the amount of time people will spend incarcerated. Currently, federal inmates will serve about 87% of their sentence.

As far as a counselor, I think they're a wise investment. The prosecutor is going to be well prepared in their arguments. Generally, these services offer trained, licensed counselors with years -if not decades -of experience in federal criminal cases and will work to make a full evaluation of your husband and help present him as favorably as possible in court. They also help with things like preparing an individual for life inside a federal facility, what housing is like, what restrictions there are, what day to day life is like, what programs and services are available to them as an inmate, how to help a family cope with things, etc.

Please let me know if I may clarify anything or provide you with additional information.
