About Brandon Parker

Brandon Parker was born in 1980 and was a commercial flight instructor in California and his all-time favorite job was flight tours in the Grand Canyon.


When Brandon gardening or practicing Jiu Jitsu, he enjoys reading and video production. Brandon’s youtube expose on prison food was picked up by the Wall Street Journal. 


In 2006 Brandon made a daring flight across the US with hundreds of pounds of marijuana onboard— 2 years later he was busted and sent to Federal Prison. He spent time in Oakland, Atwater, Lompoc, and Victorville. During his incarceration he volunteered to run the inmate education department where he taught GED.


Brandon down plays the sensational aspects of his crime when people ask. He highlights his poor decision making and holds himself accountable. He wants others to learn from his mistake and be inspired by life. Though Brandon was sentenced to five years in prison for smuggling, his story doesn’t end there.


Brandon spent the next 10 years building a step-by-step guide to help people navigate the federal system. He often says, “If I had THIS guide when I was arrested, it would have saved me $100,000 and a few years in prison.” 


Brandon knows people deserve a second chance. In fact, he’s a perfect example. The Sentencing GPS is his passion project. He built the course to help people like himself who are in WAY over their heads with a Federal Indictment.


It’s his way to make sure people aren’t punished more harshly then they deserve. You can see his course below. All the tools he wished he would have had...
