Default Back home from Sheridan Camp

So I did it. I was sentenced to a year and a day at Sheridan FPC. I left on March 28 and got a halfway house date of November 13. So I was there just over 7 1/2 months.

The food was not too bad (compared to some places I heard of). The medical leaves a lot to be desired so if you are going, make sure you tske care of any pressing medical needs before going in.

When I left, the standard hwh ranges were pretty much this (from what I saw)

4 months....1 month hwh
12 months...3 months hwh
18 months...4 months hwh
36 months....6 to 9 months
Anything over 60 months was getting 1 year hwh
RDAP grads were getting 9 months minimum in addition to their time off for completing the program


If feels so good to be part of society again. I have another month at the hwh and then 32 days of home confinement and then I begin my 3 years of SR. My PO is a work...I hope I can win her over.

Congratulations on making it through your prison sentence. Many times supervised release conditions are modified downwards after a period when you have demonstrated to the PO that you are complying with whatever you are required to do. I did 3 years myself. The first 6 months were the most restrictive, but towards the end I was only required to file a monthly supervision report over the internet.

Some things that I experienced:

Even though the PO's supervision handbook calls for an early release from SR for those who have completed all of their requirements, that never happened for me, I did every day of the 3 years. I also had to pass a polygraph regarding every one of my SR requirements. "Have you ever, even once, left the judicial district without permission ?" and so on for every SR condition, so if I had cheated, not been discovered, oops then I would have been.

Here is the PO supervision manual

I had to do every day of my five years, but I know two people on the west coast that only had to do 1/2 of their probation.

I had great POs though and had no problem with probation at all.

Thanks for the update!

Congrats! Great you made it! And thanks for sharing the info on the hwh. I'm getting ready to serve 15 months in federal and didn't know about the hwh, although I do know there is one right near where I will be. So maybe I could get a couple extra snickers bars and rondevous with my wife from tome to time- when the time comes. Thanks again!

Ask your unit team, or case manager, how much HWH time they will recommend for you. The only other variable will be the availability of a HWH bed.

I don't know where you are going, but I met a few people with 15 months and they were being cut loose at the 9 month mark (so they were getting around 3 months). HWH is a breeze. In fact wife came and met me at work for a little lunch today. At the HWH you start to feel human oncw again..
