I year 1 day Sentence Can they get out to a HWH??
 
Can a person sentenced to 1 year 1 day, get out to a HWH?? The release date currently shows 6/24/21 and she went in 8/18/20.

Thanks!

Yes he can be sent to a half way house, but it will be decided by his unit team case manager. The new law allows them to send him there for his entire sentence of 1 year, 1 day minus the 54 days of good time he will earn, but a more likely outcome is 10% of his sentence.

HWH
 
Thank you!! I am looking on the BOP site for the current list of HWH in the US.

So 10% of 366 would be about 37 days at a HWH?

The issue is there is so much leeway, anywhere from a full year, - to zero HWH, that the decision of how long is often a local determination, aka by the warden who reviews each case. Another consideration is HWH bed availability at a time when the bop has been cancelling a number of existing HWH contracts. The case manager makes a request, but the final decision is up to the HWH, do they have room on the proposed date?

Here's a list (16 pages at the bottom of the page) of HWH contracts.

His options are probably limited to the HWH in the federal judicial district where he will serve his supervised release/probation sentence, so search by location..
