In December 2006, Featherstone was paroled again. He had by then served nearly 20 years of his sentence. He returned to his old habits, getting locked up for 33 days on a cocaine possession charge in the spring of 2007 before being set free for time-served. He was then re-jailed pending a parole revocation hearing, since the coke charge violated his parole. But three days after that hearing, Featherstone was set free again: In his 19 years in prison he had earned 3,216 "diminution credits," nearly 10 years off his sentence, for good behavior.
