Can they have a car/cell phone while at a Halfway house?
Can someone tell me if they are allowed to take their car to the halfway house. Can they have a cell phone? I say No to both. My co-workers boyfriend was in one South Carolina and he was not allowed either.

Upon release I would have been through flat time no probation. My problem is I signed out of center on sunday evening. ran over time called center wanting to remand back to center. Was told charges have been filed unlawful evasion failure to return which is a class c felony. I was told to remand at anchorage jail immediately.

My only thought is if you don't turn yourself in like they told you to do, it will hurt your chances to beat the case even more. I hope everything turns out well for you, but I certainly can't advise you what to do, that's up to you to decide.
In the HWH I was in, if you needed a car, laptop or cellphone for work, they were allowed. We had to turn in the electronics when we were in the HWH, and we weren't allowed to leave without a pass, so I'm pretty sure the guys with cars could drive them when they were allowed out. Each federal HWH has it's own rules, but many of them are demanded by the bop.
