how do you find out about someone in federal prison

There’s not a lot you can find out from the prison itself beyond their name, register number, location, age, etc.

What specifically are you trying to find out?
if time was extended and later went to solitary that's more than one.problem

Yep... could also be a delay with how things were entered into their system. The Bureau of Prisons isn't exactly real-time or efficient. Could be one person handles data entry for loss of good time and someone else handles data entry if inmate location. I suspect the best answer about what happened will probably come from the inmate themselves.
why would someone be put in solitary

Could be a bunch of reasons, but typically it revolves around breaking the rules. There are a zillion rules, but some of the most common rules that are broken are things like fighting, stealing or being caught with contraband (alcohol, drugs, cigarettes, cell phones, etc.) for example.

You can also be put into solitary not as a punishment for something you did, but temporarily until the prison staff completes an investigation to figure out what happened in a certain situation. For example if a prisoner was assaulted by another prisoner and the staff don't know exactly what happened, both parties will go to solitary until it's sorted out.

...but if the inmate in question is in solitary and they lost good time, in all likelihood the prison found them complicit with breaking some rule (you don't lose good time if you are solitary before an investigation is done to determine who broke the rules, like the above example of a fight).
what would cause release date to change

If release date was extended, it could be a loss of “good time”. If release is sooner it could be a change in sentence from court or could be something like completion of RDAP drug program.
Not sure how to do all this. Very new to this federal inmate thing. My husband is currently in Atlanta, just got moved there.
