In federal criminal court, prison sentences are followed by a term of supervised release. Supervised release is like being on probation or on bond, in that there are things you cannot do and there are things you must do.
In some cases, a judge can sentence a person to probation in lieu of sentencing someone to a term of imprisonment followed by a term of supervised release. The length of probation or supervised release depends on the offense and can range from more than one year to the remainder of your life.
Courts believe supervised release helps prepare you for success after prison and probation helps modify your behavior to conform to the law without the need to go to prison, but most people find it burdensome. In some circumstances, usually after completing your first year of probation or supervised release, it is possible to end your term early. Terminating your probation or supervised release early involves communicating with the U.S. Attorney and U.S. Probation before filing a motion with the Court.
