Did New Jersey Real Housewife Teresa Guidice get special treatment at prison?

The media has been all agog of late, gushing how The Real Housewives of New Jersey female felon extraordinaire has already received a cut in her jail time down to 13 months. Fans may remember how she was originally sentenced to 15 months in prison after pleading guilty to dozens of counts of bank, mail, wire, and bankruptcy fraud, which allegedly saw them netted millions over several years.

However, it is all quite routine and quite legal. Any federal prisoner who is sentenced to more than 12 months in prison will have their sentence reduced by 15% for "good time" pursuant to 18 USC s. 3624(b). They can lose their "good time" if they misbehave such as causing work stoppages, riots, fights etc.

While in prison, her clothing will be limited to pastel green, gray or white. All government clothing, except undergarments will be tagged with her name and inmate number. She may have a plain wedding band and a religious medallion without stones.
