Mike The Situation Sorrentino - RDAP DAN

As "The Situation" hits the prison yard of Otisville FCI, located at Two mile drive Otisville, NY 10963 many people are wondering what his actual time will be like.

Daniel Wise  "RDAP Dan", Federal Prison Consultant and founder of Federal Prison Time Consulting, claims Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino will have a very easy time at this specific prison. RDAP Dan makes this statement largely due to the fact that the once-MTV-star is at a Federal Prison Camp, which is a minimum security prison. 

Forbes voted FCI as one of the top 10 cushiest prisons in the United States. The Bureau of Prisons has different security levels ranging from camp to maximum. Factors such as the type of crime, criminal history and length of sentence determine which security level an inmate is assigned to. 

Sorrentino's crime is classified as nonviolent and he does not have an excessive criminal history. In all honesty, if he were not famous he may have escaped with a slap on the wrist or probation with no jail time. The attention surrounding this case likely influenced his sentence. "It was well within the judge's power to hand down a sentence of probation", says Federal Prison Consultant, RDAP Dan. 

Daniel Wise "RDAP Dan" was sentenced to 42 months in federal prison for his role in a conspiracy to distribute that took place in 2011, at a Georgia Pain Clinic. Wise knows the system all to well, as he fought his case from 2011 – 2014. Several defendants involved with Wise's case took plea agreements stating they would testify against him if he chose to go to trial. If Wise lost at trial he would have faced 15 – 20 years behind bars. Wise was the last person to take a plea on his case, receiving a sentence of 42 months at Coleman Federal Prison in Coleman, FL. 

Three days prior to self-surrendering, Wise vented about his predicament in a YouTube video titled "Going to Federal Prison". Little did Wise know that the video would launch his career as one of the country's leading prison consultants and federal prison experts.

 After Wise's release from federal prison in 2015, he saw that his pre-prison YouTube video had garnered a lot of traffic and comments, most of which came from non-violent offenders getting ready to enter the prison system for the first-time. Wise "RDAP Dan" states "The real prison sentence is not served in prison. The actual sentence for me, and just about every client I speak to, is the daunting process that leads to prison." 

According to Wise, the pretrial experience for first-time nonviolent offenders typically lasts anywhere from several months to years. Wise says his pretrial experience started in 2011, but his prison sentence didn't begin until Sept, 23 2014. 

Wise recounts the painful memories… "Those three years of not knowing what was next was the real sentence. I had no idea what prison would be like; my only reference was was I saw on tv in shows like OZ or Locked Up Abroad. I had so many sleepless nights filled with fear, anxiety and sadness. I had two small daughters who did not understand. How do you tell your children you're facing up to 20 years in prison? Sounds like a death sentence. My poor choices did not just affect me. I turned my children into my victims by committing a crime that took their dad away for some time. Seeing and hearing them cry, begging me not to leave was heart-wrenching, to say the least. I was supposed to be the hero in their lives, but instead, I was the one that made a mess of things. I can never unsee the faces of my little girls as I crushed the image they had of me. Once in prison, I started to learn all of the things that I could have done during the pretrial phase, which could have reduced my time."

That's what Dan"RDAP Dan" Wise does for his clients who hire him prior to going to prison. RDAP Dan and his hit YouTube channel focus on taking responsibility for one's actions. Helping his clients realize they are not victims because they are the ones who created the situation they are in. The good news about that is, with the right assistance and guidance, they can also create a much better future situation for themselves. 

Dan Wise "RDAP DAN" and his team focus on what individuals can do while on bond or pretrial release that can possibly assist with sentence reduction, or in many cases even probation vs prison. Daniel Wise 'RDAP Dan" freely offers hundreds of videos on YouTube that educate individuals as to what they can do in order to serve the least amount of prison time in the best possible location.  

Wise's personal experience positions him to know better than anyone what Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino will be facing while serving his sentence at the minimum security federal prison camp, Otisville FCI, in New York.

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino will have a very easy go in prison. The hard part is over, which is explained above referring to pretrial. Now, his days will consist of waking up, eating breakfast, walking the track and very intense prison workouts that will make his MTV workout clips look like child's play. He has put on a bit of weight over the years. Post prison, be prepared to see a more fit version of "The Situation" resembling his appearance from 15 years ago.

There will be classes that he can take while in prison, such as ACE classes (Adult Continuing Education). You can become a personal trainer while in Federal Prison through the NFPT (National Federation of Personal Trainers)

Will Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino be a target for extortion by other inmates due to the fact he is famous and may be perceived to have a lot of money? Dan Wise "RDAP Dan" Federal Prison Consultant says absolutely NOT! Wise states that Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino will be treated extremely well by both inmates and staff. Staff will likely receive orders to leave him be because Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino has access to the media. Prisons do not need any bad press, especially in the current state of affairs. Wise said, "Look at what happened to former Captain Grimes of Alderson's Women's Federal Prison, in West VA. Grimes was just sentenced to 120 months federal prison time for sexual misconduct involving inmates. 

The term Camp Cupcake really does define the experience of a Federal Prison Camp. Most of the time there is no fence surrounding the prison. Inmates could just walk off if they really wanted to. In order to be at a camp, you cannot be a risk to society or a flight risk. 

Dan Wise 'RDAP Dan" Federal Prison Consultant says "Bottom Line, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino will not have much stress in prison, other than missing friends and family. He will walk the track, eat well, take classes, play sports, watch TV on flat screens and have an opportunity to really focus and connect with himself on a personal level" 

Wise closed his comments with, "I believe Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino will emerge from prison as a much better person with a new found respect that one can only learn in prison. I wish him the best."
