More on the 5K Rule:

One way for federal defendants to increase the likelihood that they will receive lower sentences or to have previously-imposed sentences reduced is by “cooperating” with the government. When a defendant “cooperates,” it means that he or she helps the government investigate or prosecute someone else. There are two ways that “cooperating” can result in a lower sentence. If a defendant cooperates before sentencing, the prosecutor can file a motion pursuant to § 5K1.1 of the United States Sentencing Guidelines also known as a “5K” motion. If a defendant cooperates after sentencing, the prosecutor can file a Rule 35 motion. “Cooperating” does not guarantee that a prosecutor will file a § 5K1.1 or Rule 35 motion. Before a prosecutor will file a motion, the cooperation must amount to “substantial assistance.”
