It depends on the court written Judgement and Commitment Order. There is no general rule as there are varying degrees of offenses and it is entirely up to the sentencing judge and the facility as to how to handle the visitation. We think that unless there are grievous circumstances surrounding the crime, the court would like inmates to remain connected to their familes wherever possible.
why do sex offenders get less good time? They will be punished for the rest of the lives as it is once they are out of jail.
They do NOT get less good time. All inmates get the exact same privilege - it is up to them whether they keep it. Inmates are granted a 15% good time credit the day they are incarcerated. Only the inmate's failure to follow the rules would cause them to lose any or all of this privilege.
We don't have any rapists here to answer this question, but if you had a firearm at your side the intruder would not be thinking about sex at all.
The Federal Bureau of Prisons offers sex offender treatment to offenders with a history of sexual offending and who volunteer for treatment. The Bureau provides two levels of treatment intensity: residential and non-residential. Eligibility for participation in a treatment program depends on an offender’s evaluated risk of future sexual offending. Institutions offering this treatment often have a higher proportion of sex offenders in their offender population. This higher concentration of sex offenders within an institution helps offenders feel more comfortable acknowledging...Read more
I have an inmate potentially being sent to Sheridan I was wondering what programs they had for sex offenders
The Sheridan Correctional Center is an adult male medium security prison, totally dedicated to substance abuse treatment and is one of the largest substance abuse treatment programs in the nation. We are certain that they have designated him here because they have the best facility for his situation
He knows the rules, if he does not register like he is supposed to, then they will keep locking him up. Why is he avoiding registration? The Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act, also known as SORNA, is part of a comprehensive federal law that requires states to maintain a system for monitoring and tracking convicted sex offenders following their release into the community. The Act makes it a federal crime to knowingly fail to register with a state's authorities, or...Read more
What punishment will a sex offender get for not registering when supposed to and is incarcerated at the moment with a bond? can they send him to prison for that?
Anything is possible. If a sex offender is incarcerated with a bond AND he has a violation for non-registration (or is he incarcerated BECAUSE he did not register), then it is more likely that the violation will force a return to prison to finish the time remaining from the early release - not to mention that if there are other charges on top of the violation.
We are not sure about the cost of your divorce as it relates to your status as "underprivileged". But the concept of divorce sounds like a very good idea. As the father, we suspect the best he could hope for would be supervised visits if the children are under 18. If they are over 18 when he is released, they can surely make up their own mind
He will serve 85% of his sentence unless there are incident reports that take away the 15% good time credits they get automatically. It is NOT true that most inmates get raped. It does happen but it depends on where they are doing time, what their profile is (their age and size), and if they are unwise as to how to do their time. Inmates must not put themselves in a position where they can be taken advantage of or...Read more
