News Note: Important new guidance on earned time credits issued...
Last Friday BOP Director Colette Peters issued new guidance clarifying two of the most contentious issues regarding earned time credits under the First Step Act. As explained in the BOP's explanation of the Program Statement:
As the Bureau continues to make progress in fully implementing the historic First Step Act, three major changes have been incorporated in this policy. First, inmates will soon be able to see all potential Federal Time Credits (FTC) they may earn over the course of their sentence at their first Unit Team meeting. This number is an estimate; however, credits may change depending on whether the inmate successfully participates in programming. Second, inmates will be able to earn credit while in administrative detention if they continue participating in available programming opportunities provided to them. Finally, inmates will be able to continue earning credit while in the community, so long as they continue to successfully comply with all the rules and procedures of pre-release custody.
The BOP's announcement of the new Program statement can be viewed here, and the full Program Statement may be reviewed here.
