Default How to apply for a few hours of bail to see a dying parent

My grandfather is sick and the doctors are saying that he is a ticking time bomb and will die in the next week or month. Now I'm just wondering if anyone knows how I can get my dad out of jail to see him? I was told if someone is on their death bed you can apply for bail or something like that as my grandfather isn't capable of going to the prison.

How would I go about getting this organised quickly?

Who do I call/what do I do?

Thank you in advance for the help.

You might try the Chaplain, ask what the procedure is for a furlough. Please don't get your hopes up for a furlough though Prisons used to escort an inmate (in chains & shackles) to a funeral home if a close family member passed. In recent years though, some prisons have stopped that practice altogether; other facilities may transport for a funeral, but they charge the family for the security detail.

My best guess is that a phone call may be arranged, but transport would be after your grandfather's passing, if at all.

Really? :/ That's not good at all.. How do I contact the chaplain? I've just been hearing different things from all of my family members so I don't know. Plus it'd be bad if he was in shackles because no one knows he's in prison :/

The Chaplain's name /number may or may not be listed on the facility's info page (either state DOC or Federal BOP), but there should be at least a general phone number to contact the facility.

I'm terribly sorry about your grandfather being so ill

Thank you so much for your help and support it's been difficult but I'm just worried about my dad is all. He used to visit him everyday before he went in there.

Hi there I see you are in South Australia so things may be different there.I would ring his facility and see if you can speak to his case worker. Explain the situation and see if there is anything that can be done.

I am sorry to hear of your family members illness,

Your Dad should also ask at the prison for permission to visit his father in the hospital. His counselor and/or the Chaplain will know if it is possible from that prison.

I don't believe that if the transport occurs, he will see any family present. I know when we called to see about my son visiting his grandfather either at hospice or the funeral home, no family could be present. The guards would take him to the hospital room or the funeral home before anyone else arrives to say his goodbye.

That's how it was when My Mr's mom died: In chains & shackles, no one else allowed in while he was there. A few years later, My Mr's dad died and the facility wouldn't transport - I didn't know him back then, so I'm not sure if they wouldn't transport or were charging for the transport & the family couldn't afford it

I hope things are different in Australia.

The best you can do is call and ask. As others have said, don't get your hopes up.

In Oregon, they will not furlough. Period. They do allow a video of the memorial service to be sent, and you can try having your father call you while you're visiting your grandfather so he can at least talk to him. That may be the best you can do.

And remember that last sentence: the best you can do. That's all you can do. It will not be your fault if your father can't see your grandfather before your grandfather passes away.
