Since my release from prison in 2009 I have worked with many clients who, for one reason or another, have served their sentence in a low security prison, rather than a federal prison camp.

My first case was in late 2009, about three months after I was released. A gentleman who had plead guilty to mortgage fraud called me after he received his designation letter. He was sentenced to 12 months and one day in prison.

The problem with the letter was that he was designated to the low at Lompoc, not the minimum-security camp.

Through my research I learned that the probation officer who wrote his pre sentence report placed a variable on him that warranted he serve his time in a low, not a camp. Further, I learned that since this defendant knew his sentence would be a year and a day, he did not fully prepare for his pre sentence interview. Comments he made in that interview led to him getting designated to a low.

To help you better understand the differences between a camp and low, I filmed a video with my colleague, Michael Santos. Michael served 26 consecutive years in prison, including time in the penitentiary, medium, low and camp.

P.S. Tomorrow will mark eight years since I surrendered to prison. I am filming a video titled, First Day In Federal Prison, to help you better understand that first day. I will share it tomorrow after I film it.

His past clients reportedly include Martha Stewart and Bernie Madoff. “Let Us Take The Confusion and Headache Out Of Preparing For Sentencing, Prison and Probation,” the company’s website cheerily states. Paperny, whose fees can run into the six figures, says he’s already been hired by one person caught up in the college admissions scandal and been contacted by a half dozen others.
