What can you do to improve your chance of less prison time…
If you or someone you love is facing federal prison time, you may be looking for things you can do to avoid serving time, or achieve a sentence reduction. If that’s you, congratulations for being proactive instead of sitting around waiting for this to “happen to you”. Being proactive gives you a better chance of a more positive outcome. Motivation is great, but you also need a strategic plan of the right actions to better your odds.
Non-ordered community service
One of the ways you can influence a positive outcome is performing community service without a judge ordering you to do so. Non-ordered community service demonstrates to the judge that you take the initiative in bettering your self and that your actions back up your words. Is there a guarantee that doing non-ordered community service will help you achieve a positive outcome? No. That’s exactly why it’s such a powerful action to take, and one that can carry a lot of weight with the judge.
Community service offers multiple benefits
Of course, the possibility of helping you avoid or reduce jail time isn’t the only reason to preform non-ordered community service. Federal defendants often feel powerless or anxious and may suffer from lowered self-esteem. Doing something positive can turn your mess into a positive message, decreasing anxiety and helping you feel a healthier sense of self. You cannot undo what’s already happened but you can use your experience and your story to help others. Helping to change someone’s life for the better is a wonderful feeling.
How RDAP Dan does community service differently
At RDAP Dan, we can work with clients to help them decide on the best community service options local to them. Our clients receive a community service tracking document to assist them in keeping a log of their community service hours and the relevant information pertaining to that work. As a Mindset Coach, I guide clients to take more control and greater responsibility, and accountability for non-ordered community service is part of that journey.
If you’re coaching with me, you’ll handle non-ordered community service a little differently than others. Not only do our clients do the community service work, but we can assist clients to create a document that shows the judge exactly how the community service positively changed you. Using an easy-to-follow guide, you spend a few minutes after each community service encounter writing your answers to 3 questions. At the end of your community service hours, you answer a few summary questions. By spending just a few extra minutes on a regular basis, you create a well-written document that is highly valuable in helping the judge recognize your personal growth.
Here’s why it works
Listen, judges see many cases and it can be easy for everyone to bend together after a while. They’ve heard just about every excuse and numerous people have asked them for mercy. If you want to stand out in a good way, take bold positive actions to differentiate yourself. If you’re willing to put in a few extra minutes of effort, I can help you get the most benefit from your non-ordered community service hours.
