Default Is it true that early release is happening now due to overcrowding ?

I have a friend who is currently incarcerated and was due to be released after completion of SAP, which she will have completed by November. She has already been recommended for parole and the SAP program is the only thing holding her there. I was recently notified by VINE that she will soon be released and she was instructed to fill out her home placement paperwork ASAP. This all happened about 1 week ago and she has been on pins and needles since. Vine did tell me that she was being released due to overcrowding, but is there any way to know approximately when ? Has anyone else dealt with a similar situation recently ? I would love to be able to give her some assurance. Thank you

There have been some "early release" options available for a while now (HIP and MRS) due to over-crowding.

But ya know, I don't think the left hand (Parole Board) knows what the right hand (DOC) is doing. My Mr made parole upon completion of MRT....however, he was flat out told by the facility that he would be released on his parole release date and he could finish the last 3 weeks of the program on the street. And that is exactly what happened

So, yes, its possible....but not guaranteed. She needs to speak with her counselor and ask if she has to complete SAP inside or outside...she also needs to get her Home Placement completed.

Welcome to PTO!
Thank you very much for your welcome .. I think that her home placement investigation has been completed, or at least begun. Her father has been interviewed and should have no trouble with approval. I guess that we are assuming that because VINE notified me of her early release, and then 2 days later she was asked to fill out home placement paperwork, that she will be released very soon. Would you agree ? Is there anyone that I could contact to learn more about her case ?

What's her PED (Parole Eligibility Date)? You can locate that on DOC's inmate look-up (KOOL). That's the earliest she'll be released if the DOC decides she can finish SAP on the street rather than finishing it in prison in November.

EDIT: She can speak with her counselor...I'm not sure how much info the Counselor would give over the phone.

She should be released upon completion. If she's in SAP in a county facility she may be released earlier to complete it on the streets but if she's in prison that may not be the case.

Here's the new deal on parole grants. Yes, the board does review up to 60 days prior to the PED. A temporary order is in place to release when granted as long as home placement is approved rather than waiting until the PED. So if PE is January 1, and the board grants November 1, person will be release as soon as home placement is approved so it could be a day or so after the Nov 1 date. This temporary order was for 6 months only and runs through about Dec 1. It is for overcrowding both in jails and prisons. Hopefully, the temp order will be extended beyond that date.

It was reported all over April 19-21. But from our work, we got the following.

In order to address jail overcrowding, the Parole Board has issued the attached emergency regulation, which is immediately effective, and will be effective for the next six months or until it is included in a permanent regulation. That regulation includes the following language permitting the immediate release of inmates who have been granted parole, prior to their official eligibility date:

Section 4. Emergency Authority. If the Commissioner of the Department of Corrections gives notice to the board of a need to relieve state prison or local jail overpopulation, the board may authorize the Commissioner to release one (1) or more persons who have been granted parole but who remain in custody solely to meet the time service requirements of this administrative regulation, if:
(1) Sixty (60) or fewer days remain between the date of the actual release and the date on which the imnate would otherwise be physically released on parole;
(2) The release would not result in a violation of a statutorily set minimum service of time requirement, including that set out for violent offenders under KRS 439.340l; and
(3) All other release requirements, including victim notification and re-entry planning, are completed.

The Commissioner of Corrections has given the notice mentioned in the e-reg, and so jails and prisons have found themselves placed in the position of having to release inmates ahead of schedule. Note that it doesn’t apply to those who have a parole eligibility date set by statute (mostly, violent offenders, PFO first), only those whose eligibility date is a function of the Board’s regulation.
