HWH can be for as long as one year, but it is usually closer to ten percent of their initial sentence. He can find out how much time, if any, the prison will recommend from his unit team case manager. Once the CM sends the request to the HWH, the actual date will depend on if the HWH has an available bed.

It also may be possible for him to be allowed to live at home, on "home confinement" either directly from prison, or after meeting requirements while living at the Half Way House. His bop unit team usually handles direct releases to home confinement, while the HWH staff and the bop community corrections manager decide on transfers from the HWH to HC. Either way, a home inspection visit is necessary before HC, and usually even before he will be approved for overnight passes there from the HWH.

So if by chance he obtains HC does that mean he is not permitted to go anywhere hence "confinement"

He will have rules, just like he will on federal probation/supervised release. They will be set by whoever is supervising him, US PO if he goes directly from bop prison, or the HWH staff if that's how he is allowed to live at home. I went to HC from the HWH. At first I had to call the HWH and request a pass any time I wanted to leave home, but that was quickly changed to a 6PM to 6AM curfew, so I was free to do whatever I wanted during the day.

He will be told his restrictions for HC, and again when his prison sentence is completed. The main difference is that he will still be in bop custody at the HWH, and HC, so he can be returned to prison if the bop decides to send him back. Once he is on supervised release, the PO has to file a violation with the federal court, which will be adjudicated by a federal judge.

So, on a sentence of 20 years (given your statement of "closer to 10 percent of their initial sentence") could my friend and I be lucky enough to think he might get HWH for 2 years? Would that apply to home confinement also? That's what we're hoping for (as opposed to a HWH).

Maximum HWH time is limited to 12 months, home confinement at 6 months, so the most total "community corrections" time allowed is one year.
