My name is Marc Blatstein. In 2006, I, too, was Indicted and convicted of a felony, and I lost my medical license. To call this a life-altering event, at best, is an understatement. With work, I fully reinstated my license: Prison is Temporary.

My goal in this series is to provide you with the information you’ll need to survive and navigate these times. Knowledge and Preparation will help build back the Confidence you’ll need throughout this process.

  • Since you’ve heard that the DOJ and Feds have been asking questions, their case against you is mostly complete, with a 98% Conviction Rate.
  • Delaying to act now is at your peril.
  • Hiring a legal team doesn’t just mean they have experience; they also need a proven track record of successfully defending cases like yours.
  • The choices you make today – will make a better tomorrow.

Should you have questions, please do not hesitate to call and consider engaging my services at 240.888.7778—this is your life.

Using the information provided in the Presentence Report (PSR),

  • Prisoners are, for the first time in addition to just being incarcerated, now offered a mechanism through FSA Programs, education, and working on their personal development and growth,
  • …to earn credits toward an earlier release date.
  • You can use a computer to take your assessment survey when you first arrive. If you don’t, you may still be able to take the FSA Classes, but you’ll get no credit.

Personal Development and Growth

  • Document – document – document
  • Each and every class you take, what you learn, and now you have a record in case you are challenged months later.
  • Document each conversation with BOP Staff.
  • Education: GED, Associate, Undergrad, Master; or Occupation and Trades training = Personal Growth and Development

All this Documentation = a Release Plan

  • It makes your Case managers look better. Maybe they get a Raise, but this Saying Holds: If you help them get what they want, you’ll get what you want.

  2. They can now take their time to fill in their Probation Report. Then, on the day of the interview, they’ll have the time to personally get to know your client and ask any remaining questions they may have.
  3. At the end of their meeting, the Probation Officer may feel that the defendant took this seriously, leaving them with a more positive view of your client, other than the person referenced in their Indictment.”

a)  It provides information about the offense for which the defendant is being sentenced,

b)  Acceptance of Responsibility and

c)  Victim Remorse statement,

INDICTED: KNOWLEDGE, SUPPORT AND PREPARATION – PRISON IS TEMPORARY

WITH KNOWLEDGE, SUPPORT, AND PREPARATION – PRISON IS TEMPORARY. HOW QUICKLY IS UP TO YOU

To call this a life-altering event, at best, is an understatement. My goal in this series is to provide you with the information you’ll need to survive and navigate these times.

Knowledge, Support, Grit, and Preparation will help build back the confidence you’ll need throughout this process.

Admiral McRaven gives great advice because these obstacles are universal. He speaks to the challenges we all face through an inspiring speech regarding the challenges women and men face as they aspire to be Navy Seals. While these challenges appear vastly different on the surface, there are many common trigger points from my perspective.

This short video should leave you with hope through grit, perseverance through frustration, and “Not Ringing The Bell” because prison (if that happens) is a temporary albeit Big bump into your future— but with a new beginning.

Preparing for your Presentence Interview, Sentencing, and Release Plan creates a Daily Routine to Follow once inside, making the transition to your release start on Day One.


Internalize His Ten Steps Toward Your Future, Because  It’s Now Up To You.

  1. START THE DAY WITH A TASK COMPLETED – MAKE YOUR BED
    • By these soldiers making their beds, a small, simple task is completed each day first thing.
    • As panicked and terrified one may feel, it’s normal as we each deal with these stresses individually.
    • Accept support from those around you, but when you hear rumors that the FBI is asking questions, now is the time to plan
  2. FIND SOMEONE TO HELP YOU THROUGH LIFE
    • As this group of young men and women face these mental and physical challenges, they begin to work together.
    • Getting support from those closest to you is a good start. Having them with you as you begin interviewing lawyers gives you a second opinion when it’s most needed.
  3. RESPECT EVERYONE
    • In the competition and toughness of Seal Training, they learn quickly that the leaders may ultimately be different from what they initially perceived.
    • Respect is very important in prison, so go out of your way to learn the nuances of life inside before you get there. For example, don’t just sit on anyone’s bed; personal space is treasured, so ask permission. The basics: don’t steal from others or try to make ‘friends’ with the guards.
  4. LIFE IS NOT ALWAYS FAIR,
    • After making one’s Bed,” even doing everything right, their drill sergeants may find fault in everything they’ve done correctly. 
    • Why? Because this is what they wanted as they thinned the herd of trainees.
    • While there are innocent people in prison, if you believe in your heart that you were at least partially responsible, admit this and own it.
  5. DON’T BE AFRAID TO FAIL
    • Training to become a Seal requires a special person because failure is sometimes not an option and must be overcome.
    • The only way to know success is through failure; the best of the best complete their training by adapting and learning.
    • If you and your counsel KNOW you’re innocent (and the DOJ has it wrong), then go to trial, But first ask your attorney how many cases have they won.
    • Do understand that the DOJ has a 98% conviction rate; therefore, prevailing is less than 2%.
    • Don’t anger the court and judge, as there is a very high percentage that you will be back asking for leniency. 
    • If you lose, all is not lost because a well-written Narrative and Release Plan could save the day. Accepting Responsibility and Remorse for the Victims Harmed could endear you to the court.
  6. SOMETIMES, HIT LIFE HEADFIRST 
    • Whether you are a Criminal Defendant or Training to become a “Seal,” if you’re going to succeed, you’re going to have to fight until the end.
  7. FACE DOWN THE BULLIES
    • In Seal training, it’s the famous Drill Sargents who are constantly trying to get you to Ring The Bell.
    • While facing federal indictments, it’s fear (your internal demons) and the loss of control. 
    • Comprehensive Preparation for Your Presentence Interview. To date, your attorney knows the law—but not who you are.
      • A well-written Personal NARRATIVE and Release plan can help them – help you.
  8. STEP UP WHEN TIMES ARE THE TOUGHEST
    • Whether it’s the Physical and Mental stresses of the famous Seal Team Training or confronting your inner demons to Participate in your defense both in court and then in prison, these two events, while different, are also the same!
  9. HOPE – LIFT UP THE DOWNTRODDEN
    • If a Washington, Lincoln, King, Mandela, and even a young Pakistani Malala can succeed in the face of adversity, so can you.
  10. NEVER GIVE UP
    • The Bell didn’t get rung!
    • You’ve prepared a comprehensive file for your Probation officer before you ever meet.
      • It includes Your Personal Narrative, Release Plan, and all the records your Officer wants copies of.

  •     You Think You’re Out/Done – But You’re Still Under “BOP” Control,
  •     This could be the Hard Part – No Mistakes – Don’t assume,
  •     Question Everything Before You Act; ask your Probation Officer or Residential Reentry Manager First and Often. Not hearing back is Not an OK To do what you want to do.
  •     Some are harder to deal with – But Make This Temporary.

Supervised Release – Probation

  •     For some, this is the hardest part while on probation or parole, representing approximately double those incarcerated or 3.7 million (state and federal).
  •     This disrupts families and much more, representing a ‘Catch-22”: a

(1)  a condition, regulation, etc., that prevents the resolution of a problem or situation, or

(2)  a frustrating situation in which contradictory regulations or conditions can trap you

  •     Incarceration and supervision by the state, May 2023.
  •     The top states with the highest numbers of mass punishment (including state prisons, federal prisons, local jails, youth confinement, Indian Country jails, involuntary commitment, parole, and probation) were Georgia, Arkansas, Ohio, Idaho, and Maine last out of 50 states and DC.

Even on Parole or Supervised Release, the slightest misstep can send you back to prison for struggling to follow vague and wide-ranging rules or for simply being unable to pay monthly fees, restitution, or other legal-financial obligations. https://www.prisonpolicy.org/blog/2023/12/21/best_of_2023/#:~:text=Punishment%20Beyond%20Prisons%202023,correctional%20control%2C%20including%20community%20supervision.

WHITE-COLLAR: Your Release Plan

The Release Plan

#PPRSUS, #BOP, #PSR, #WhiteCollar, #crime,#psi, #criminal, #lawyer, #attorney, #ppp, #MoneyLaundering, #arrest,

Hello, and thank you for tuning into my Video series, INDICTED AND FACING PRISON: NOW WHAT?
My name is Marc Blatstein. In 2006, I, too, was Indicted and convicted of a felony. To call this a life-altering event, at best, is an understatement. With work, I was able to get my license reinstated.

Prison is Temporary.

My goal in this series is to provide you with the information you’ll need to survive and navigate these times because Knowledge and Preparation will help you regain the Confidence you’ll need throughout this process.

  • Since you’ve heard that the DOJ and Feds have been asking questions, their case against you is mostly complete, with a 98% Conviction Rate.
  • Delaying to act now is at your peril.
  • Hiring a legal team doesn’t just mean they have experience; they also need a proven track record of successfully defending cases like yours.
  • The choices you make today – will make a better tomorrow.

Should you have questions, please do not hesitate to call and consider engaging my services at 240.888.7778—this is your life.

The Release Plan I’ve divided into ‘6’ Parts:
Part I)
Starting before your Presentence Interview (and is provided along with your Narrative to be woven into your Presentence Report), you’ve had time to think.

You’ve been,

  • Humbled
  • Embarrassed
  • Regrets that I did – what I did

Part II)
Before your Sentence Hearing (building and after giving more thought to your 1st Release Plan),

  • Humbled
  • Embarrassed
  • Regrets that I did – what I did

Allocution
Being Nervous is Normal, so prepare your thoughts where they are pre-written or in video format.

Part III)
Once inside, here is where it grows – mostly by documenting your Personal Developmental Growth, which includes,

  • Written reviews (complimentary) of what you’ve learned from that FSA Program and
  • Other constructive things you have been working on in areas of interest to you, including
  • Mentoring others or possibly teaching classes.
  • Learning a Trade or Occupation that requires training (i.e., CDL at Pensacola FPC or FCC Yazoo City.)
  • Personal Growth and Development include Education, whether a GED, Undergraduate, or Master’s Degree, and even working towards higher education (maybe a Law degree) if that interests you.
  • Do you paint, draw, or write? As long as it’s Constructive – Do something, this could possibly lead to a career.

Consider teaching a class if you are a CEO, COO, business owner, doctor, or Lawyer and have been successful.

  • If you already have a possible job lined up for after release, email, call, or write them to see if it is still available.
  • ~18 months before release, you may consider contacting your New Probation Officer, who will supervise you on Supervised Release.

If you own a business not part of your Charge, they could hire you just as a minimum wage employee. But you need that Character Reference – Job Support – Reference Letter.

Part IV)
Before Release, detail what you will be doing once released.

Planning can reduce anxiety and help to facilitate a smoother transition home.

Recommendations from your Case Manager to the Halfway House’s Residential Reentry Managers (RRM) help greatly. Including your Release Plan and their support could go a long way in helping you. But again, nothing is Guaranteed.

What is guaranteed is that RRM are employees, too, and don’t want on their record to have had to send someone back to prison due to an infraction. Therefore, they are looking at BOP files to see who is the best candidate for the limited number of beds. You want to be that person.
