Default 8 months home and he is getting on to unsupervised parole

We are celebrating a milestone of parole today! My boyfriend started three years parole 8 months ago. His P.O. called and said she is filing paperwork so that he can write in monthly instead of meeting in person. No more home visits for the remainder 2 year four months we got to go. We had hoped to get this at a year but were pleasantly surprised. I have to say his P.O. has been so supportive , put him on a great course for success and always was very polite when visiting our home. That’s my update!!!

Fantastic news!

My husband is due to be released at the end of January, and we just had the PO come and do the pre-release visit/inspection for when he goes on SR next March. I was very excited to learn that even though my husband will have 1 year of SR, that he will be able to apply for termination for SR after 6 months in his case assuming he has a low risk assessment number when he gets assessed upon release (which he should). If they gave negative risk numbers, his would be such. That said, for those of you with LOs inside, this guy told me what they do on the inside (they get a report) factors into this risk assessment for recidivism, etc., so the more they positive things they do, the better. I was pleasantly surprised about this because I had always been told he couldn't apply for at least a year which would've been moot in our case, but the PO said no, he can just file and go in front of the Judge to ask, so there is hope this will be over for good in the Fall of 2019.

That said, the one issue of confusion is still whether or not he has to go to HWH or can go straight to HC because he was recommended to HC, but this guy didn't know what was going on there because the BOP deals with that and my husband hasn't been informed of the decision and where he goes. The left doesn't know what the right is doing, which is awful.

His unit team will decide about HWH, usually after his one year to go team meeting. Now that the bop has canceled many existing HWH contracts, there is supposedly a shortage of room and more folks are being sent directly to home confinement from prison. Either way, and whether it is 6 months or one year, it will be over soon.

His case manager has already put in the recommendation for HC. Said, my husband isn't a candidate for HWH and someone like him shouldn't be in the HWH, however, the gossip is that the BOP runs the Chicago HWH differently and makes everyone go to the HWH regardless before going to HC for at least 2 weeks. And for the 2 weeks, you can't even leave other than to run small errands. Can't leave for a job even, which is stupid. So he would have to go there and deal with their ridiculous restrictions, have limitations on the cell phone he has (thank god his mom still has a stupid flip phone he can use), etc. He will only be at the camp for 13 months total, so definitely isn't having a meeting after his 1 year mark because everything will already be in place for his departure by then - how he's getting to the HWH, who's picking him up, etc. But, as you said, 100% agree, 8 months from now he will have the opportunity to be leaving the camp, and 10 months from today he will officially be on his 1st day of Supervised release!! And, better even, 1 year from today he will be free to travel within the US, US Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and I think the guy even told me Guam?! It's the start of life returning to normal...and a vacation. (60 days after he begins SR he can travel out of the district)

My personal experience with the HWH is that it was a colossal waste of time, almost as bad as prison. If the case manager is on his side about home confinement, that's a good thing, but the final decision will be up to the warden's policies for that prison & HWH. (and possibly the Region's too). The CM submits their recommendations for review and approval, and changes were very common where I was.
