    Do you think they may just let you go? I think they call it a suspended sentence or something like that. They just add your sentence to your probation time since your jail time is short. Would be great if you could just go free after a couple hours in there.

    Doubtful... Maybe they would release me to a halfway house early or something though... Not sure really.

    Some unsolicited advice, based upon a couple of people that I knew who went through the BOP many years ago:

    1. Avoid at all costs as coming across as arrogant, a smarta**, etc., to your jailers. They hate that and can decide to put you "in transit" at any time. That means you will be on a bus all day and staying at a different jail every night. They have done this to "annoying" inmates for up to 12 months without interruption. It really, really makes life miserable for the person in transit. First impressions are especially important as they are eager to size everyone up quickly and pay more attention to your early activities than you might think.

    2. If you can become of "value" to your jailers (helping with IT issues, for example) you will get extra perks and leniency. I would not recommend this if you were going to a "tough" place because other inmates might mistake you for an informer, but in a low-security facility like you are going to, that will not be so much of an issue. There should be very few, if any, "hard rocks" there who will take personal offense .

    3. There are no friends in prison. Trust no one. Many people get really desperate and irrational when caged and would sell out their mother if it got them freedom more quickly.

    4. Be very quiet about your success in the business world. Some folks there would find you to be an interesting (i.e., wealthy) target when they get out or perhaps for a crony who is on the street now. Happens all of the time.

    Good luck with everything. The good news is that on your first day, you will already be a "short-timer." As one fellow that I used know would say, "Four months before I get out? I can do that standing on my head in a closet."

    dude you watch too many movies, advice, just keep your head down.
    i very much doubt it will be a high security prison, more like a walk in center with a perimeter.

    And your basis for making these comments is???

    As I said in my post, my comments were based on input from people who have been in the custody of the BOP. I also acknowledged that this will be a minimum security facility. That said, the BOP is the BOP, no matter the institution being managed and they are very serious about what they do. The inmates are there for a variety of reasons, none of which involve high school antics or movie storylines. Your advice, "just keep your head down" is as lame as it can get. In fact, one needs to keep his eyes and ears open at all times in a situation like this.

    So, dude, let me know where you get your expertise from and we can decide who is watching too many movies or offering advice based upon fantasy or speculation.

    I am confident that if there are issues they will have someone qualified waiting in the wings that can address them.

    This thread was funny to read. Oh well at least you are man enough Shawn to admit you were working in the "gray area" a bit. Just too dam smart with code. Like you say, save millions and get it settled. Should be able to buy off some guard for internet access. lol No "Bubbas" is a bonus I am sure! Life is an experience. You will now have another unique experience to share with us! You sill get 3 square meals a day. Not all bad. Things could be worse, could of had the mother in law knocked up! lol (teasing with that):)

    Female guards love bad boys, that's why they choose to work at a jail in the first place.

    Lol... just doesn't seem smart. I'd suspect prostitution at a federal prison would result in THEM going to federal prison themselves. Like would you think it's smart to sell drugs inside a police station? *Someone* that cares will find out. :)

    Sounds like 5 months of free food and board (If you don't include legal fees) and a hell of an adventure.

    Should we sign you up for every free magazine subscription imaginable? ;)

    5 months of free food and board and amazingly hilarious stories. Shawn is lookin' great, working out, running, attitude amazing and positive, reading a lot, volunteering in horticulture and checking out sports equipment is his high paying job (I think 12 cents an hour). The boredom not as bad now that he is volunteering in horticulture and football season will help. Celebrated his birthday with him on Monday.
