Default Pa 511: How does it work, what are the benefits?

need help understanding PA 511

My son pled guilty to a sex offense and was sentenced to 4-10 years. He has served 1.5 years of his term. He just found out he was eligible for a PS 511 but never was told about it. He had a public defender and I would like to find out if it would be beneficial for him to be part of the PA 511, how does it work, what are the benefits of PA 511 and is it possible to try and be put into the program?

From what I understand, the sentencing judge has to recommend community corrections programming based on certain criteria. Not all jurisdictions have applied for funding for the programs. I found Monroe County's list of programs & criteria, but keep in mind that the exact programs may differ from jurisdiction to jurisdiction:

Monroe County PA 511 Programs

Hopefully someone more familiar with MI and PA 511 will be along to provide better information.

Completing programs can take time off their sentence.
