Federal prisons are overcrowded with many inmates that are serving unjust mandatory sentences. The Federal Bureau of Prisons currently has over 200,000 inmates incarcerated and the numbers are rapidly growing. The estimated cost to house a prisoner is $29,000 per year. Thousands of these men and women are non-violent first time offenders that are serving maximum sentences due to the abolishment of Federal Parole. ~FEDERAL PAROLE~ With the enactment of the United States Federal Sentencing Guidelines in 1987, parole was discontinued for all federal offenses committed after November 1, 1987. Instead of parole, federal offenders receive \"good time.\" The maximum allowable good time is 54 days per year. This means that federal prisoners now serve 85 percent of their sentences. ~H.R.261~FEDERAL PRISON BUREAU NONVIOLENT OFFENDER RELIEF ACT OF 2007~ Amends the federal criminal code to direct the Bureau of Prisons, pursuant to a good time policy, to release a prisoner who has served one half or more of his or her term of imprisonment if that prisoner: (1) has attained age 45; (2) has never been convicted of a crime of violence; and (3) has not engaged in any violation, involving violent conduct, of institutional disciplinary regulations. ~SECOND CHANCE ACT~ On March 11, 2008 The Senate PASSED the Second Chance Act and it is now waiting to be signed by the President to become a law!! Finally some change!
