RDAP Prison Consultants founder Patrick J. Boyce provides his clients with a unique professional full-service pre-sentence, post-conviction, prison preparation / designation and consulting firm – representing exclusively federal criminal defendants and inmates throughout the United States. Clients are offered an extensive suite of services to effectively manage the intimidating federal criminal process, tailoring consultations to fit individual needs.
In the interests of his clients – Patrick strategically positions himself in a subordinate role to counsel, strictly adhering to current defense strategy and providing expertise in a specialized area. Each client works one-on-one with Patrick – developing comprehensive strategies that help to achieve the lowest possible sentence.
First and foremost, in concert with counsel we do everything in our power to prevent our clients from ever seeing the inside of a federal prison. However, in those cases where a prison term cannot be avoided, we make sure that our clients serve their sentence at the best facility given their individual needs, while at the same time providing the greatest opportunity for early release.
Clients are provided with accurate, up-to-date, real world information regarding the entire judicial process including federal incarceration (from a defendant’s point of view). Patrick counts his greatest attribute as having personally experienced every aspect of the federal criminal justice system – from indictment, trial and sentencing through incarceration, supervised release, and the rebuilding of life after a period of incarceration.
This program offers eligible inmates up to a 12-month sentence reduction, in addition to spending the last 6 months of custody in a halfway house. Graduates effectively mitigate their “gross” sentence by 18 months!
For example – A graduate of the Bureau’s 500-Hour Residential Drug Abuse Program (originally sentenced to 37 months incarceration) would become eligible for transfer to community custody in approximately 13.5 months!
Obviously, the entire federal inmate population aggressively pursues entrance into this program. Unfortunately, not every inmate is “eligible” and there are only a limited number of classes available at select facilities. Members of the Bureau of Prison’s psychology department demonstrate a need for the program and determine eligibility by carefully scrutinizing documentation and entrance criteria.
We properly document all pre-requisite eligibility and ensure that clients establish a solid foundation of current Bureau of Prison policies and procedure to aid in a seamless transition through federal prison in the minimum required time.
