Huffman's Services is proud to announce that the First Step Act has passed the United States Senate
and the United States House of Representatives has signed the bill into law. 


Huffman's Services works on the basic theory that the government, whether local, city, county, state, federal, immigration, bankruptcy, family court, traffic court, etcetera. The entire government operates on information, including the justice system. Whether it be in a civil case or a criminal case, 99% of all convictions are based on guilty pleas and the reason most incarcerated citizens plead guilty is because of the overwhelming amount of evidence and the punishment if they go to trial of an excessive sentence. Within the state and federal criminal code, there are specific exceptions for cooperating with the government where the mandatory minimums will not apply where the recommended sentencing guideline manual does not apply. When cooperating with the government, the government can do anything that it wants. The government can reduce the charge; they can reduce the sentence; they can vacate a conviction, and they can suspend portions of a sentence. There is an unlimited number of options. When the government is motivated and the judge involved in the case is agreeable, anything is possible.

Our Method

Huffman's Services provides a very complex service and though this is very complicated it is at the heart of a very simple process. We will convert your financial assets into a sentence reduction by any number of methods. We will contact the prosecutor or your law enforcement agent after we have done research on exactly who they are. Before we contact them, we will have a member of law enforcement with whom we have had a successful working relationship in the past contact them to make an introduction. Once we meet with them, we will come to a working agreement to find some way to reduce your sentence. There are many options and possibilities available to reduce a defendant's sentence.

We may be able to reduce your sentence by making a donation to a charity, or by arranging volunteers for an organization; or perhaps there is a victim that needs immediate assistance, or through a donation to victims' services. However, in most cases, confidential information is the way that we get a sentence reduction though we are willing to do whatever is necessary to get our clients their sentence reductions.

What We Do

We do what a lawyer and a private investigator cannot do. A lawyer is licensed and prohibited from certain actions and a private investigator has more restrictions than a lawyer does. However, Huffman's Services has our negotiators; and while we may hire lawyers or private investigators we are not restricted. Additionally, a lawyer charges and makes so much money that it is not worth his time, trouble, or effort to involve himself in this type of sentence reduction process.

Once we have found out what type of confidential information the government requires, we will find the information needed and use it to get a written agreement between the prosecutor and the judge to accept this confidential information. Once it is verified, you will be provided a sentence reduction. Our clients have no involvement in this process whatsoever; they will not have to testify, they will not have access to the information we provided the government, but they will enjoy the fruits of our labor in a sentence reduction.

If our clients have confidential information that they want us to broker, we will be happy to do so. It is not required that our clients provide us with any confidential information. In fact, very few of our clients do. They are incarcerated and while incarcerated there is a code of conduct that strictly prohibits cooperating with anybody. Accordingly, Huffman's Services will cooperate on their behalf. Even though our clients are not directly cooperating with the government, the credit for the cooperation will be used to reduce their sentence.

Taking Responsibility

Huffman's Services is the only company in the United States that specifically handles this type of negotiation. Accordingly, our clients should not wait until they are convicted and their appeals are exhausted and there are no other options, but to contact us. Quite the contrary, the time to contact us is immediately after they have been arrested, while there is still an opportunity to make adjustments on the charge, and negotiate a sentence reduction, long before the matter becomes more complicated and delayed by the court system.

Huffman's Services is happy to talk to any client's attorney or private investigator. However, once retained, Huffman's Services reserves the right to hire their own lawyer and private investigator to meet their obligation of a sentence reduction. It has been our experience that most lawyers do not wish to be involved in this type of negotiation. In fact, it has been our experience that because lawyers operate on massive profit margins, they will do anything to keep the money flowing to them, including advising their clients against our services.

Huffman's Services believes in taking personal responsibility for our actions. Our clients are people who are taking responsibility for their actions by utilizing their funds to make donations to charities, to help victims, to help victims' services, to arrange volunteers for organizations, and for doing something positive while providing confidential information through Huffman's Services.

Options For Sentence Reduction Process

We obtain sentence reductions through various process sometimes through the prosecutor's offices sometimes through the governor's offices sometimes through clemency pardon commutation and sometimes through the parole board depending on the circumstances and the willingness of the various authorities we will determine that during the course of the case. In every case we are working to solve an unsolved criminal case of a high profile nature to give back to society to obtain a sentence reduction.

What We Need From You

It is a part and parcel of the criminal justice system that taking personal responsibility and acceptance of responsibility in many cases reduces the sentence, both in the federal and state system. Huffman's Services works on the theory that if you are willing to take personal responsibility by using your funds to do good deeds and make positive changes, then the prosecutors, the law enforcement personnel, and the judge involved will recognize those actions.

Our owner, Richard Huffman, has accepted personal responsibility. Many of his examples of cooperating with authorities, he did on his own, using the theory of accepting personal responsibility and doing good deeds. He only asks that his clients become partners in this theory and understand that this service is all about accepting personal responsibility and changing the past by making positive changes in the future.

Huffman's Services' clients are expected to maintain their best behavior during the sentence reduction process; because prior to the judge making a final determination on how much of a sentence to reduce, they're going to look at your incarcerated conduct, both long-term and short-term. We do not want clients who merely wish to buy their way out of prison. That's not what we do. We want clients who want to use their funds to make good, positive changes in society; that is what Huffman's Services is all about.


We do not normally respond to customer reviews as the majority of our work is confidential and anonymous. However, some of our clients have requested that they have their review posted on our behalf, and so we do so. Please remember that the work we do is confidential, and the reviews that are posted we normally cannot respond to because of confidentiality. We specifically state that there is no guarantee concerning the end result as there is no guarantee whatsoever when dealing with the criminal justice system.

The Process

Huffman's Services understands the process above and beyond the words that are written concerning federal and state law and it is that knowledge and experience of the actual process that allows us an opportunity to get relief for our clients. While it is true that there are restrictive federal and state laws that allow for cooperation with authorities and sentence reductions for them, in many cases, there are separate processes where benefits may be obtained utilizing a different process.

While it is true that the entire sentence reductions system is based on a number of approving authorities, such as the prosecutor, who must make a motion, the judge who must accept and process the motion, along with probation and other authorities. It is also true that at the end of the day, the criminal justice system operates on confidential information and irrespective of any specific policy in any particular area if successful cooperation is done.

Even without advance approval, and provided to the government in the form of successfully solving a high-profile criminal case in the Local District of conviction, or successfully finding a wanted high-profile fugitive that the government will review that information and fairness, honesty, decency, and fair play all come into play with the authorities.
The authorities are honest, decent individuals that are doing a very difficult job under very difficult circumstances and when an act of attrition, acceptance of responsibility, successful cooperation with law enforcement will be rewarded. In many cases the government will not enter into an advanced agreement and it is sometimes necessary and our clients understand this that Huffman's services will proceed with a sentence reduction through cooperation process on the theory that once the successful cooperation has been substantiated, verified and is into the court system that a reward will be applicable to the client. Huffman's Services reserves the right if we believe it is likely that we will be successful to proceed with a sentence reduction process under this Theory and without the advance consent of the government. Our clients all understand that we are the process of last resort and sometimes due to circumstances we will voluntarily without an agreement in place solve a high-profile criminal case or find a wanted fugitive in this regard.

Prosecutor Agreements

Huffmans services will contact the prosecutor's office speak too law enforcement on an unsolved case once the prosecutor is willing to consider a sentence reduction for cooperation we immediately retain the private investigator and get the private investigator working on solving the case. Once the case has been solved and that is the key to the process once the private investigator has solved the case we will go back to the prosecutor for a sentence reduction process using whatever statutory authority that the prosecutor prefers we are not lawyers or private investigators if you wish us to hire lawyer to get in writing a sentence reduction we can do so however we have never had a prosecutor not keep their agreement to consider a sentence reduction for cooperation.

However it is a client's responsibility to do so if they deem appropriate. Our job is to contact law enforcement find unsolved criminal cases normally homicide find a private investigator that can solve that case speak to the prosecutor to get them to agree to consideration of a sentence reduction all of the mechanical legal issues concerning the sentence reduction process are left to the client or the clients lawyer. We are the inmates voice we are not lawyers or private investigators but we retain one or both if the client wishes us to do so. We feel that if a prosecutor tells us that they are willing to consider a sentence reduction and we go out and hire a private investigator and solve a homicide case there is no chance that the prosecutor is not going to keep their agreement to consider a sentence reduction and do so. Especially not when we're working on something as important as a homicide case. We are the clients voice we are not their lawyer. Prosecutors can reduce the sentence using whatever statutory process they prefer whether it's the cooperation statute or some other statute reduce the sentence. Our job is simply to put the components together get the case solved as fast as possible so our client can have a sentence reduction process.

Federal Third-Party Cooperation Requirements

#1 the defendant must some role investigating, requesting, providing, or directing the assistance. #2 the government would not have received the assistance but for the inmate's participation. #3 the assistance is rendered for free. #4 no other circumstances exist against rewarding the assistance. Because of these strict Federal requirements, Huffman's Services must do an eligibility evaluation and at some juncture contact the prosecutor and get their permission to proceed.

State Third-Party Cooperation Requirements

Compared to the Federal court system the County elected district attorney with rare exception has unlimited Authority to authorize sentence reductions based on substantial assistance to authorities, cooperation with authorities whether directly or third-party. The process is much simpler as you're dealing with one elected district attorney. The requirements are on a case-by-case basis as the elected district attorney may decide.

Written Sentence Reduction Agreements

We do not a get written sentence reduction agreement. We do contact the prosectures office for sentence reduction policy. We do confirm a willingness on a sentence reduction.

Options for Sentence Reduction Process

We obtain sends reductions through various processes sometimes through the prosecutor's offices, sometimes through the governor's offices sometimes through clemency pardon commutation and sometimes through the parole board depending on the circumstances and the willingness of the various authorities we will determine that during the course of the case. In every case, we are working to solve an unsolved criminal case of a high profile nature to give back to society to obtain a sentence reduction.

"We are merely an extension of the inmate-defendants own pro se efforts"
We are not lawyers or private investigators but we will retain one if we deem appropriate.
Sentence reductions are at the discretion of the prosecutor as to manner and method.
This is the process of last resort. This is an opportunity to give back to the community by solving an unsolved criminal case in the local District of conviction which opens opportunities for potential sentence reductions parole probation and other type of relief. You should first exhaust all of your normal legal options. There's no guarantee of success.
