Post Can someone explain how Control Release works in Florida?

Can someone explain how control release works in Florida? I've read how inmates are scored to determine if they are eligible for early release but not if control release is something Florida is currently doing. My Fiancee is about going to processing tomorrow, he was sentenced to 24 months with 18 days time served. With his time served, if he gets all his gain time and serves 85% of his time, he'll be home Sept 2021. He's a first offender and a veteran. Several people have mentioned work release but I'm not sure how that works either. He's been in for 11 days. I miss him more than I thought possible and am trying to look at every possibility he can get out early.

Like everything else, Control Release is governed by Florida Statute. I hope this helps explain how it works, who's eligible and who's not eligible & why (click the links provided):

CHAPTER 947FLORIDA COMMISSION ON OFFENDER REVIEW; CONDITIONAL RELEASE; CONTROL RELEASE; PAROLE

Control Release specifically is: 947.146 Control Release Authority.

Thank you. I was trying to see if my fiancee would be eligible. It looks like he would but I'm having a hard time finding out what the current capacity Florida prisons are at. His attorney said there were "talks to decrease the prison population" which could mean control release but it's difficult to find anything other than the statute about it.

"talks to decrease the prison population" and Control Release are really 2 different things. Control Release will only happen according to the statute above (w/o looking, I think it was 90 days @ 99% capacity). However, that doesn't mean that there aren't "talks" about further / future legislation, policies, etc that would decrease the prison population regardless of the % capacity, such as parole, additional good time and/or other measures.
