Commutation of Sentence Program
We explain the whole process to you at each step of the way
The Bureau of Prisons (BOP) has a program with procedures and guidelines by which a federally sentenced inmate may file a Petition for Commutation of Sentence in accordance with the proper statutes and laws set forth in 28 C.F.R. Part 1. In a Petition for Commutation of Sentence the inmate may seek four different types of relief. They are:
- Reduction in Prison Sentence only;
- Remission of Fine and/or Restitution only;
- Reduction of Prison Sentence and Remission of Fine and/or Restitution; and,
- Reduction of a period of probation, supervised release, or special parole.
There is not a defined list of circumstances or conditions which would qualify an inmate for a Commutation of Sentence. Each case is decided on its individual merits. We provide the appropriate forms, research, documentation, and instructions then actually complete the Petition for Commutation of Sentence for you. The inmate signs the application and it is delivered.
It is important to note that the Bureau of Prisons’ staff may not refuse to process an inmate’s Petition even if they feel that the inmate is not eligible.
Additionally, the BOP cannot forward any recommendation, negative or positive, with the Petition of Commutation of Sentence when it is submitted. That way, even if you do not have a good relationship with the Warden or the Unit Team, they cannot negatively affect the process of your submission of the petition.
Almost any crime committed can be commuted.

If your main goal is to only expunge your criminal conviction and hide or limit the details of your conviction to people who do background checks for employment, rental properties, loans, or just nosey neighbors, read below:
Although some states allow expungement of felony convictions, Federal Conviction Expungement is in 99.99% of most cases not possible.
