My boyfriend was on home confinement at one point while waiting for a disposition on his current case .it was pre trial so probably a little different but it was very restrictive..he was supervised by probation ..had a gps ankle bracelet and was expected to stay home 24 hours a day with the exception of medical appointments , court , lawyer visits and probation appointments ..he was not even allowed to look for work ..I am not certain how they would handle it in your hubby's case as If I remember correctly you live out of state .I'm not sure if interstate compact would cover that or not .

I guess it depends on how long the home confinement is. We were offered the opportunity to apply for that, tooJ not saying it would even be approved. After reading all the restrictions, though, and finding out that the home confinement would be for the entire time, not half time like jail, we decided against it. You would not even be able to go for a walk, etc. Just my thoughts on this. Sounds good at first, and if you don't do much anyways, maybe that would be for you. We are outdoors people, though, and it would just be too restrictive. Hope that helps.

Have you reviewed the DOC documents about the program?

Just in case, I found some which may be helpful...

Here's a description of the various levels.

The law.

Earned Risk Credit.

Good luck with whatever option you do!

It's all so confusing! I'm kind of jealous of people who have tickers that say when their people are getting out because we have *no* idea. 120 days? 2 years? It's crazy!

Does anyone have experience with someone being released to home confinement directly to a sober living facility (instead of their actual home)?

And I'm trying to figure out the docs (thanks for linking!) - does HC always mean they serve the full sentence? Thanks!

Welcome to Prison Talk! I wish that I had some experience in this area, but unfortunately I don't know anything about release, and am unlikely to gain experience. I hope that you can find some answers to your questions, but no matter what, you have company as you sort through the DOC process. Welcome again!
