Default 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.

As far as I understand, when they're in a HWH, they're still on the prisons count and they're not allowed cars, cell phones, etc. until they get out on parole and are no longer at the HWH.

I have moved your thread here to the Probation, Parole, and Supervision forum as it is a better fit for this dicussion. This way members with like experiences can share them with you. Best of luck.

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.

Bering - I agree with fbop - I don't think being on the run ever ends well.

Qbic - At my husband's HWH, plain - no frills - cellphones were allowed. And you were allowed to have a car if you were working.

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.
