My son received three flat and there is no violence involved. The three flat is to keep them in prison for a longer time than if it is, say 1 1/2 to 3. My son was convicted of attempted criminal sale of a controlled substance and got three years.

As for work release, I believe it works the way your son suggests, but he has to be accepted into it. Another alternative which offers early release even with three flat is Shock Incarceration. It is best if the judge recommends it since it is the DOC that makes the final decision. Shock is much harder and is similiar to a military boot camp.

I hope this helps.

Patty
