    Host: Is there any way to get out of prison early?

    Ed Bales: It's very difficult to get out your sentence once you have been incarcerated. There are certain programs in prison that will reduce your sentence. There are things such as pardons and commutations of sentence, but they are very difficult to attain. The best thing you can do is plan early. Look at the eligibility requirements of programs that maybe available in your sentence in jurisdiction and work with the prison consultant to attain that.
