Q: What does shaves down his potential prison time mean?
A: "Shaves" means "removes a little". Think of "shaved ice" (かき氷) and how it's just a thin layer of the ice that is scraped off a bigger block, making the bigger block a little bit smaller. It's the same thing with, in this case, a prison sentence. So the time he spends in prison will be less because some of that time is "shaved down."

Synonyms of "Prison" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between prison and jail ?
A:
At the most basic level, the fundamental difference between jail and prison is the length of stay for inmates. Think short-term and long-term. Jails are usually run by local law enforcement and/or local government agencies, and are designed to hold inmates awaiting trial or serving a short sentence. Prisons, on the other hand, are typically operated by either a state government or the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP). These are designed to hold individuals convicted of more serious crimes, typically any felony. Prisons offer different programs to inmates depending on the inmate's level of custody (i.e., minimum, medium, or maximum security, solitary confinement, etc.). Minimum and medium security programs include halfway houses, work release programs, and community restitution centers. Typically those who are eligible for such programs are nearing the end of their prison terms.
