Arrow Sex Offender - Probation Revoked

Jay is in jail for a probation violation, his original charge was Mitigated Statutory Rape. I am wondering, is it normal for someone with a Stat Rape charge, who was put on probation and had it revoked to do their time in a county jail instead of a prison? I ask because when I look up any information on the charge and the penalty for such it mentions being incarcerated in a prison. Is "prison" just a general term that can mean prison or a county jail? Any thoughts???

Did you check the SOR? It should tell you what his status is.

He's not registered, for whatever reason... I wonder about that myself, but the SOR is a dead end for me.

the guy who was arrested along with my husband has a prior sex offense charge. And yes they revoked him and stuck him in the county jail. He was charged with a felony on his new charges but he is still in county. They revoked his bond also. Seems to me like there are no set rule according to what your charges (prior or current) or your sentencing.... argghhh! And where they send the person depends alot on how much time they have to do and i guess how crowded the prisons are too.

The state pays the county for housing state inmates. I do agree with superdream about the delay being that the prisons are overcrowded.

I'm late on this one but often times if they are serving less than 8 years they will be sent to a county jail to finish the time. even though they say 8 years its usually around 3 or less.

My son's father is incarcerated in a county jail for probation violation (& some additional alcohol related charges). They have classified him as a hibitual criminal. I'm not sure why he's doing his time in county???? He has a parole date & is considered a state inmate. May have something to do with the amount of time.
As far as the sex offender registry....if I'm not mistaken they're usually not required to register until after their release. I read something about that the other day online (believe it was a link from a link on the TN.Gov website).

My husband told me that usually if their actual incarceration time is going to be only about a year, they keep them in county. Not sure if there is a written guideline. My hubby would have stayed in county for parole violation ...but he committed an additional felony so the state came and got him!

Everyone I have ever talked to (here anyway) said they'd much rather do their time in prison rather than in the county jail.

I think it's all just a confusing system! LOL. Jay doesn't really talk about where he'd rather be (prison or county)... He has mentioned a lot, though, that he'd rather be in the mental health institute he was in for a few days (evaluation) if it were an option. I'm sure I wouldn't blame him for that one, you have much more freedom at a mental hospital. But I guess my answers concerning prison or jail classification have been answered. Jay's original sentence was 11-29 turned into probation time, after having his probation revoked, was ordered to do certain amount of time - So his time is less than a year, can see why he is in county instead of prison. Was just curious as I know some people stay in county jail for various felonies, and others are in prison for the same (similiar) felonies. I was a wee bit confused. Bah! *walks around the room, mumbling* Thanks for all the opinions guys!

You know...thinking about it, I know it can take weeks...sometimes months to transfer from county to state. Then once you get to a prison you have to go through classification, etc., then get transferred somewhere else. I guess by the time one goes through all that & they FINALLY get to where they're going to serve their time...you're half way (or more) through your sentence already. So I guess I can see the point of keeping them at county.

My husband would rather be in prison than county. He kept saying he was sick and acting crazy when he was at county and said "I'm a TDOC inmate! I demand better treatment or I'm filing a grievance". Then they finally got rid of him and sent him to CBCX. (haha)

Oh lordy, Tony was a basket-case when he was in county. Although he's all the way across the state, I prefer him to be in prison just for the visitation aspect. We've spent more time one on one in the 8 times that I've traveled out there than we would have if he'd stayed in county and I visited 2x week for my 30 mins. And those visits he was behind glass! He feels that he has more freedom in prison, and I think that's because at KCDF they are understaffed so he spent a lot of time locked down. He did 18 months there under those conditions initially when he picked up his charges and I don't think he dealt with it well then. Needless to say, he didn't want to go back. Luckily within 30 days he was transferred to WTSP for classification and then 30 days to the day he was transferred to HCCF to do his time.

Heard the same - food is suckier, visitation is suckier and NO TV's (perish the thought)....

The county jail my husband was in only served food twice a day, 6 am and 6pm. And no tv. OH MY GOD! (duh, you're in prison, not on vacation..)

I don't know about anywhere else, but in Sumner County it is the jail administrator that chooses who goes, and when. When there is an opening in prison (IE) classification, they call the administrator and say we have 3 openings, or we have room for 5 or whatever number it is. The administrator then goes through the list of everyone waiting to go to the pen and selects the ones to fill the spots. And they get sent.
