A Federal Prison Expert was asked during a recent radio interview whether he negotiated with the Bureau of Prisons on behalf of his clients. The response was an emphatic “no.”
The BOP is in control of inmates. Inmates do not negotiate with the BOP. Instead, an expert federal prison consultant teaches his clients how to navigate through the prison mine field.
The goal is to get the client to the other side of the mine field. The client needs to know where the mines are. And the client must have the utmost respect for the mines, remembering that, while he traverses the field, the mines are in charge.
Prison consultants do not provide legal advice. The prison consultant does not deal with issues of guilt or innocence. The prison consultant provides information to his client, their family and the defense team. The primary objective is to inform and educate, to demystify this otherwise frightening experience.
The prison consultant makes sure that his clients know what programs are available while in prison so the client is prepared to use those programs to return the client to his family, and to his life, as soon as possible. The clients of an experienced prison consultant will know in advance about rules, socialization, what to expect, and how to avoid costly mistakes.
As a nation we are sending people to prison at an alarming rate. Even as crime rates decline, prison populations continue to increase. One consequence is the likelihood that the prison experience will touch more of our lives. As this happens, more people will rely on prison consultants to help them navigate through this process.
