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.Read more
This depends on the custody level of the inmate and the decision for him to go is on the warden alone. Your nephew nephew to meet with his counselor and request permission for a family death furlough. The CDCR has this policy statement in their Operations Manual: A temporary community release log (TCL) shall be maintained in a designated location at all facilities. Custodial escort for a TCL is defined as a Department peace officer properly trained and certified in escortRead more
First, you have to understand that this is not something that is granted often or to just any inmate. The inmate must be in a low to minimum custody classification with limited time left on their sentence. They must have a completely clean disciplinary record while incarcerated... and even that might not be enough to get a furlough to go to the funeral. Our advice is to have the inmate speak to their counselor and then their chaplain. It's notRead more
That is a damn good question! Back in the day, Atlanta camp gave furloughs like they were hot cakes. I did time with some guys that transferred from Atlanta camp. They described the nightly jaunts leaving the camp and going out and getting with their women and boozing it up. They would time it to come back before "count time" and would bring in food, cigarettes, weed and liquor. It was the wild west. Recently, the Atlanta Journal Constitution published aRead more
Maybe, depending on his crime, his in-prison behavior, the length of time left on his sentence. Furloughs are rare but if he's been a model inmate there is a chance they escort him to the hospital bedside for a couple of hours, but they are not going to "let him out early" for this reason.Read more
There is no "rule" when an inmate might be offered a furlough. They tend to get approved for a weekend pass to an approved home a few weeks before they are actually releasedRead more
The answer is "sometimes". Depending on the length of the sentence, the type of crime, the level of custody and then there is the logistics for movement. If this were to be granted, the inmate might have to bear the cost of travel and to have officers accompany them.Read more
You will need to contact the chaplain, your inmate's counselor and then finally the warden (who make the final decision). If your depiction of your inmate is exactly as you describe, there is a very good chance that you can coax a furlough out of the warden. The minimum custody level give him the absolute best chance. Just start with the chaplain and they will give you your best path as they know the inner-workings of the facility he worksRead more
It is our understanding that the penal system has no problem taking pregnant women into custody. Upon the time for birth, they will transport the inmate to a nearby hospital (medical furlough) for the delivery. Once the baby is delivered, there would be some prearrangement whereby a relative would take care of the newborn.Read more
Inmates on work release are still property of the system and are not afforded furloughs unless they are specifically granted them. "Going home" is considered an escape unless there is an approved furlough in place.Read more
