www.TheMiamiDefender.com The Law Office of Robert J. Lee, P.A. When the Federal Court sentences a defendant to a term of imprisonment, the Probation Officer in charge of completing the Presentence Investigation Report may recommend to the bureau of prisons that the defendant be placed in a residential substance abuse program for those who qualify (18 U.S.C. Sect. 3621(e)). Pursuant to the bureau of prisons program statement (P.S. 5331-02), those serving 37 months or more may be eligible for a sentence reduction up to 12 months; those serving between 31 and 36 months may receive a reduction of up to 9 months; and those serving less than 31 months may be eligible for a reduction of up to 6 months for participation. As such, review carefully the bureau of prisons program statement (P.S. 5331-02) and determine whether you may be eligible. For example, those with prior convictions of homicide, rape, robbery, aggregated assault, arson, kidnapping or an offense which involves sexual abuse of a minor may not be eligible.
