Bureau of Prisons spokesman Ed Ross says that date is based on the assumption the former Illinois congressman receives the maximum reduction of 54 days a year for good behavior.

Ross says federal statute calls for that reduction for a full year and a portion of that number for any partial year an inmate serves.
