Unfortunately, once IDOC has made its selections, there aren't very many avenues to protest, from what I understand.

About the only way I can think to get out of it is if he had some sudden serious medical issue come up where he would be better treated at ISCI (the main prison Yard here in Boise). Or if he got into enough new trouble that his points got escalated to a point where he'd be sent to Max (also here in Boise) instead of medium-custody, since only medium-custody prisoners qualify for transfer, as I understand. Or if he decided to PC up (be sent to Protective Custody, up at Orofino) but none of those options are rather appealing, since he'd lose much of his day-to-day freedom and have to live in much more restrictive housing if he went any of those routes.

I've heard that the main candidates for transfer down to Texas are those medium-custody prisoners who have at least 5 years left to serve before they even go to Board.

How much time does your brother have left? When does he next see the parole board?
