Default Halfway house time

Is there an method to the madness of the amount of time in halfway house??? Some with shorter sentences get 4 to 6 months, others will get nothing..
Any information on why the huge amount difference, or is it just the way it works in the BOP

Halfway house time is based on needs of the offender. It isnít a reward. Actually, itís opposite. The more programming you need, the more HWH time you get.

If you have a stable household, adequate resources, a good support structure at home, you will get less halfway house time. The people that tend to get more halfway house time are the ones that may not have a home or a strong support structure waiting for them on the outside.

Itís important to know that halfway house time isnít an award for good behavior while in prison. To the contrary, Iíve seen people who have a harder time while in prison and get more infractions get more halfway up the time than somebody who did what they were told and never got into trouble.

Remember..BOP...backwards in purpose.
