Ask the inmate answer
The federal system is run by the Department of Justice and houses offenders with federal convictions. These convictions range from issues relating to taxes, environmental laws broken, white collar business crimes, and many many non-violent crimes. The sentencing guidelines range from a couple months to life in prison. Don't let your imagination run away with you
