<<Why did he lie ?>>
I am guessing he wanted to surprise her when he found out for sure.

Fuloughs are temporary leaves in the federal system, reserved (I think) just for guys in minimum security camps, with clean prison records, and with a short time left on their sentence. The purpose is to give them some "practice" being on the outside for 24 - 48 hours, reconnecting with family/loved ones.

JV, hope everything works out for your guy's furlough, and you have a nice time.

They also give furloughs in State (in Florida) when they get to pre work release and work release. I believe they start at 4 hours and go to 8 hours and they get 1 per week. It's my understanding that they have to have an approved sponser and be at work release for a length of time before it gets approved.

My man is in Florida and we are waiting for the day he gets furlough! I have a few questions... you said they get them pre work release... like when? My man has been approved for work release we are just waiting for a bed to open up! Also, do you know anything about the sponsor, does it have to be a family member? thanks! :)

This sounds like the " Home Passes" that you may receive in NC. You must be within 12 months of release. When we started, we would get an 8 hour pass every week. Then it went up in increments 24, 48, and 72 hour passes. You had to give them a schedule of everything that you were doing. It was really helpful in preparing my husband for coming home, to get small doses of real life.

My daughter will be eligible for pre work release when she is 28 months of her EOS. I believe work release is somewhere around 15 months of EOS but I'm not certain. She was told by her CO at her review so if you have questions, you should contact your man's CO. I do think that the sponser has to be a parent or spouse but again-I'd ask the CO about that. Hope this helps.

We just applied for one for my son. He was sentenced may 12,2008 his papaw is real sick so they might let him come home for 1 day to see him before he goes to prison., I will let you know how it goes.

I hope he gets approval! My mom applied for a 12 hr furlough and was denied. The reason she requested it was so that she could be part of my Grandpa's 80th birthday celebration. They stated the reason being was because she had grown children and was established in the community pre incarceration. Now what that had to do with the price of beans you got me! Anyhow.. it was a big let down. We may have lost the battle, but not the war!

I hope all goes well with his furlough.If so i will be very happy for the two of you and I am not going to lie I would be jealous as well,Indiana does not give furlough any more since the last time one was given the inmate killed his ex wife. And we really could use one now since our baby has stage four cancer. never the less I would be very happy for the two of you.
