Subject: Furloughs
There are several release options being offered to inmates with non-violent offenses. We are hearing that home confinement is the preferred method for these furloughed releases. Just a caution to the loved ones of possible release, they will have serious stipulations on the release and you can help make sure yours sticks to the rules because we are also hearing people violating within hours and then being sent back to the SHU. "Be careful" is all I'm saying.

Absolutely not, there is no way they will be furloughed for that to happen... sorry to be the bearer of that news

If they are granted furloughs where they are incarcerated they might be eligible to enjoy a weekend at home

Not likely, the only time furloughs are considered is when someone is on their "death bed" or for a funeral.
Subject: Furloughs
It depends on where, but MOST facilities have completely stopped conjugal visits... bummer :(

You cannot petition for an inmate's furlough, it must be granted from within. Four months is not long enough to be considered for a furlough.
Subject: Furloughs
You would have to get permission from the warden to travel too long a distance. It is highly unlikely that they will allow that or furlough to a hotel or temporary residence.
Subject: Furloughs
It depends on the "paperwork". There is a wide variance of time. It could be 2 months or 6 months before they actually walk out the door.
Subject: Furloughs
Yes, that is the step-down pattern for inmates close to the door. They are given little bits of freedom to slowly rejoin the family unit and successfully get back into society. Your fiance needs to be on top of his game in following directions and being where he is supposed to be at all times. This is not a time to play it fast and loose.

Inmates wishing to attend the funeral of an immediate family member must petition the warden. The warden is the sole decision-maker whether the inmate would be permitted to leave the compound at all. If by rare chance that the request is granted, the inmate would have to pay for the Corrections Officers time who would be tasked with accompanying them.
