It probably takes a week or so for them to get settled and assigned to a work detail.Read more
Work release inmates get a paycheck, however, they have to give 1/3 to 1/2 of the gross proceeds back to the institution.Read more
This is a classification abbreviation - it refers to the lowest level of custody where and inmate will have the opportunity to get some work release time which allows the inmate into the public domain for work, and then go back to the facility in the evenings.Read more
Someone on the outside has not ability to influence whether an inmate is granted work release. The decision-makers inside the prison select inmates with a short sentence and have exhibited perfect behavior, no incident reports, no drama. Best advice you can give them is to "behave like a model prisoner".Read more
The answer is that they can and sometimes will test work release inmates everyday - before and after their shift..Read more
This sounds like some sort of work release program. He is probably a few months from the door and they are allowing him to get a job before he's out so that his re-entry will be smooth and successful. Getting a job after you've been locked-up is hard. The ones that get jobs and keep them are the ones that are least likely to re-offend, violate or just feel hopeless and commit another crime to pay the bills. InmateAidRead more
Your son will need to have a meeting with his counselor to go over the sentencing calculation. This is something only he can take care of. There is an inmate handbook he received at Orientation where it lays out the specific rules and requirements to apply for work release. Unfortunately, there is very little we on the outside can do when it comes to administrative issues inside the prison or jail.Read more
This is highly unlikely unless the county jail has a work release program (not all do); but given the fact that he is "awaiting sentencing" might preclude his participation in a work release program. The fear is that while not yet in his final designation, he might be tempted to walk away... and for that reason we doubt there would be that option for him at this time.Read more
Not likely. The work release phase is the last step before release. We would advise the inmate to remain patient and not do anything that would jeopardize the current release date.Read more
Folks on the outside cannot request or make anything happen on the inside. Inmates with a clean conduct record and that show a willingness to follow recommended programming will get asked to join the work release program.Read more
