Default What chance does he have to get on work release?

My luv was sentenced On the 16th of december and it was a big relief to here they split his 36 months to 18 months in and 18 months out. He just check the kiosk and his ERD 10/25/17 im so happy. To make the days go faster i dont count the month we are in just the ones after. So 9 months to go. I keep telling my self its not that long, but i look at our daughter(3month) and realize how he misses so much and when he calls he loveshearing her babble..but then i hear tgeyearning in his voice how he wishes he could have a relationship With her.... So we pray that he can get work release after classification... Does anyone know the likely hood of a inmate on DOSA getting work release?

This link is to a Washington State government page (open the attached document) that includes "DOSA offenders in Work Release will be subject to DOC 460.135", so it is possible.

DOSA offenders can go to work release.

Whether or not he goes to work release will depend on his prison classification, which work release, does he have enough time for DOC to get him into a work release ect.

Can you clarify what you mean when you say "does he have enough good time" and they usually try to put them back in the county that they are from right?

Since he only has 9 months to his release, he may not get a chance to go to work release.

Yes, he not only do they try, but they *must* release him back into the county in which he was convicted. It's actually very difficult to get released into a county other than the one in which he was convicted.

No. The law states he has to go back to the original county of his first felony conviction to include juvenile convictions. It doesn't matter if the offender hasn't lived there for years.

Is it hard? It really depends on the Class Counseler and the CCO.

Thank you for the correction (I mean that genuinely). Wow. That's pretty rough. I assume this is specific to the county of their first felony conviction in Washington (e.g. they won't interstate compact them to some other state if the first felony conviction was in, say, Idaho).

It doesn't include out of state convictions.

In my experience, problems come when an offender has an extensive criminal history in County X and tries to release to County Y and there's an obvious lack of support.
