Work release is different than the halfway house. Work release is when you live in the prison but take a bus (Mon - Fri) to a remote location where they work with civilians. When their work day is over, they return to the minimum security camp and sleep. The halfway house means "halfway between in prison and being released from prison." The halfway house is when the inmate is released into the community, they will live in the halfway houseRead more
That might make a compelling argument for early release from halfway house - or at least home confinement. What we would advise, is to have your inmate get a stipulation from their counselor on a "what if I pay my restitution (by borrowing from a relative, will this get me to the door any sooner". You want to know that it will have some bearing before you pay it.Read more
This depends solely on bed space. Everyone working their way towards the door sometimes meets a log jam getting into a halfway house near their family. There are far fewer halfway house beds than prison beds. It could be a few days or several weeks unfortunately. We've even heard of inmate's halfway house time being served in the originating institution. The good news, he has an out-date!Read more
It is submitted with plenty of leeway - there is no standard time frame for them to respond. In almost all cases, the recommendation submitted is what gets approved. Please be patient.Read more
The release date on the BOP website is the inmate's "out date". Halfway house is considered "still in custody" as an inmate will be in an adjustment to reentry phase. The release date is when the inmate is officially released from the halfway house.Read more
You pretty much have the process covered in your question. His actual release date is still determined by which of the recommendations are actually enacted. Is it 6 months or is it 9 months? Once you know that, then he'll have a solid "out date".Read more
If your inmate is doing her time in the federal system, the halfway house is pretty much standard release protocol. We have heard of inmates denying halfway house altogether and are able to finish their sentence "inside". As far as release completely, this is up the the language in the Judgement and Commitment document written by the judge who sentenced her. If there is a period of supervised release, then "running" would be foolish. The BOP will not keep anRead more
You will know when they decide. There is no magical process that we are in on. If he was recommended six months, more than likely he will get it. Most federal inmates are getting six months these days - even more months if they started with longer sentences. Halfway house is no joke either. The inmate must look for a job and pay the house one-third of their pay for the entire six months. Newly released inmates get a falseRead more
For what reason are you trying to "locate a halfway house in Sacramento"? You do not have any input in where they designate himRead more
Don't do it. It seems like an easy answer but the response from the feds will be swift and severe. Your inmate will go back into federal prison with a higher custody level.Read more
