When my friend says it, it means that he will be on probation or supervised release after he gets out. I think that is the term they use for saying that they will continue to have to check in and meet conditions after they are released. Someone please correct me if I am wrong.

My Husband uses alot of terms now I have never heard of. Don't feel stupid, it is a different world in there and they pick up the terms after a while. I always ask my Husband what things mean. Remember, they didn't know what these things meant until someone told them, right? :)
