Default Abramoff on house arrest 2 days after halfway house

Kris Alingod - AHN News Contributor

Baltimore, MD, United States (AHN) - Convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff has begun work in a Maryland pizzeria while completing his sentence for fraud and corruption.


According to the Jewish Times, Abramoff works at Tov Pizza "in all areas... with a focus on marketing strategies." The Baltimore Sun reported that the former lobbyist is serving the remainder of his sentence on home detention, and is required to report regularly to the halfway house to which he was released early this month.

Tov Pizza is a popular restaurant that has served the Baltimore area since 1984.

Abramoff once owned a kosher restaurant in Washington, DC. He was released from a federal prison on June 9 and transferred to a Baltimore halfway house where he was expected to remain until his release, scheduled for Dec. 4.

The Bureau of Prisons says it contracts with halfway houses to assist inmates about to re-enter civilian life. The agency decided jointly with the non-profit organization operating the halfway house to allow Abramoff to return home after only a few days in the halfway house, according to the Sun.

Whoops - it actually was "a few days" after house arrest. Whatever - it was pretty darn quick compared to other people.

Hoping we get that HWH!!! I think the high profile inmates get home quicker so not to disrupt the HWH with media & such. Michael Vick went straight home if I remember correctly. Could also be for thier safety as well.

Default can a 65 year old inmate go straight to home confinement?

Is getting a job mandatory before being allowed to move from HWH to home confinement? if the inmate is 65 years or older?

From my experience, he will be exempt from the requirement to work or search for a job. As soon as he is fully released, he can begin receiving a Social Security retirement pension (if he has enough of a prior work history to qualify) and even though "full benefits" are payable at age 66, he can officially retire any time after age 62. Since BOP rules are followed by all of the HWH, it shouldn't matter which one he is sent to.

By the way, Social Security cancels all payments during any month someone is locked up for a felony crime and I'm pretty sure that being in a HWH counts as being incarcerated.

Being in a HWH does indeed count as being incarcerated for all intents and purposes.
