There are several facilities specifically for sex offenders, the most notable is FCI Tuscon. The RDAP program might allow a non-violent sex offender with another layer of administrative scrutiny. Since we do not know the wording in the Judgment and Commitment Order, we don't want to give you false hope.

Reasons for non-eligibility:

Inmates not eligible for early release include those who have a prior felony or misdemeanor conviction for homicide, forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault, or child sexual abuse. Also not eligible for early release are inmates whose current offense is a felony that: (1) has as an element the actual, attempted, or threatened use of physical force against the person or property of another, (2) involved the carrying, possession, or use of a firearm or other dangerous weapon or explosives, (3) by its nature or conduct presents a serious potential risk of physical force against the person or property of another, or (4) by its nature or conduct involves sexual abuse offenses actually committed upon or intended to be committed upon children. Inmates with firearm convictions and inmates who have received a two-level adjustment in their drug guideline offense severity score for possession of a dangerous weapon (including a firearm) pursuant to Section 2D1.1(b)(1) of the U.S. Sentencing Guides are also ineligible for early release.
