“I was charged with the murder of my best friend, and held on a $1 million dollar bond. My family got Greg Robey on the case and he immediately started fighting for me. He found a forensic pathologist and a firearms expert to help my case. After a long battle with the prosecutors, I was freed. I can honestly say that Greg Robey saved my life!” -R.W., Warren, Ohio
The U.S. Supreme Court has sided with the Government in a recent federal prisoner good time case. In Barber v. Thomas, the Court ruled that the Federal Bureau of Prisons correctly calculates that federal inmates should receive 47 days off for each year of a prison sentence actually served. Previously, federal inmates had been receiving 54 days off for each year of the sentence imposed by the court.
In contrast to federal inmates, inmates in the Ohio prison system receive no good time credit off their sentences. Thus, a 1 year prison sentence means that the inmate must actually serve 1 year.
