I had a felony in Washington State and pending charges in Oregon State. I signed a Detainer while I was doing time in Washington. I was turned over to Oregon where I was sentenced and started my confinement after my Washington time ended in Oregon. I finished my confinement time in Oregon and was given my release conditions. I had 3 years of Post Prison Supervision from Oregon and 3 years of porole from Washington that were to run together. I did what my Oregon PO requested. Eleven months after my confinement ended my Oregon PO informs me that Washington issued a arrest warrant because I didn't report to them within 24 hours after my confinement ended in Oregon. I was told there was a mix up between the two states and went to Washington to sign a inter state compact and a conditions form. And the warrant was dismissed. I was told by Washington that there was a mix up on the paper work and Oregon was going to do the supervision. When my Oregon supervision was over I called Washington PO office and was told my porole still had eleven more months left. I was told because I didn't report till eleven after my confinement to them. I was not given any instructions from Washington about reporting to them. Does anyone know if I can do anything about this? Any information would be appreciated.
If Washington had you as absconding for 11 months, the clock stopped on your parole there. I'm not sure what, if anything, can be done about it...perhaps one of the PO's that posts here will come along and have better information for you.
You failed to read what you signed. Your WA Judgement and Sentance states you have 72 hours to report after your release. You failed to comply.
Thanks for your reply. I again read my Judgment and Sentence paper. There is no statement about reporting within 72 hours or anything about reporting after release. This is a 10 page document from Benton County, JUDGMENT AND SENTENCE (JS) ( PRISON) (RCW 9.94A.110,.120)(WPF CR 84.0400 (6/2000) This is my copy of the certified copy that is filed with this court.
