Default Conditional Release in Florida?

i read in the post prior to this one what conditional release is but does it apply to every serious offender or does the judge have to order it at trial? my b/f was not sentenced to probation this time and i'm wondering if they can throw this in the way and he still have to do probation when he is release due to this conditional release? HELP!!! rosi

here is a link to the florida statute on conditional release, it is very long, but it has tons of information in it, I hope it helps you out some. I am not too familiar with conditional release, so any added info that you discover in the future would be helpful to us all!

Florida State Statute - 947.1405 Conditional release program

thanks, sweetpea....i didn't fully understand the language but i did email a senator from FL for an explanation and once i get it i will post about this statute...it seems like they just took more power away from the judges in FL....if the judge doesn't sentence them to probation, this is a way of imposing it on them....rosi

Sounds good to me! If you dont get a response from them, maybe try a parole/probation office(r)?? I know it may be hard to get a nice person there who will take the time out to help, but it may be worth a try!! Anticipating what you uncover!!

OK, I'll try to keep my opinions to myself but what I have learned is

Conditional Release is mandatory for anyone being released prior to their full sentence. Basically an inmate serves their gain-time on Conditional Release under the Custody of the Florida Parole Commission but under the Supervision of FDOC. This is not parole, probation or control release and it has its own set of rules in the Florida Statutes (FS 947.1405 and FS 947.141).

If a person violates conditional release they forfeit all the gain-time they have earned along with any other kind of time they were awarded while in prison. FDOC is allowed to reinstate the forfeited gain time but claim you have to save someone’s life before they will do this.

Time spent on Conditional Release Supervision could be awarded (all or in part) to the violator but it must be done at the time of the revocation hearing and is in the hands of the Parole Commission. (This is new, post Jan 2003).

There are specific rules and regulations associated with Conditional Release which must be adhered to and, depending on the type of crime committed, vary in severity.

Hope this helps

I don't know and I never heard it phrased that way so I am not going to try to figure out what it means. I have known a bunch of released inmates never heard that term in reference to anyone.

My son went and spoke with his classification officer and told her that he wanted to waive his gain time and do out his whole time instead of possibly being released on CRD, she told him no! She said "Don't you think everyone would like to do out their entire sentence and not be on surveillance?" He said that is job security for them, as most will violate and have to go back.

Ok my husband did 8 sentences and never did any with conditional release. But he did have gain time for each time, I asked my MIL and she thought this meant whoever got a split sentence, my husband always refused this, because it meant you did half prison half probation. I don't really know what for sure and I know for a fact the sentencing judge decides this not the prison.

I think if you are released on your gain time, even if you are not sentenced to parole and you are reporting somewhere and paying the exorbitant monthly fees that is conditional release. It is conditioned on you being able to support yourself and pay the fees, which gives them a sure fire way to violate someone.

The first time my son went to prison, he was sentenced to five years, three in and two on probation, he violated, caught new charges and is now back, this time he was sentenced to six years, one year jail time (which he just finished), and the rest prison with no probation when he gets out. His classification officer told him that he could get CRD with his gain time. This is really stupid, if they are going to give you time off for being good, then that should be that. We will have to wait and see, he still has time to do.

Ok I found out a bit more it's basically parole if you have say 5 years mandatory you do your 85 % then you do your gain time on parole reporting monthly. Just another way to screw people over.

Hi everyone, my husband is scheduled for release in June 17, 2018 on this CRD I was trying to really find out what it was and now I know thank you ladies. We were going to transfer it outta state but no other state reckonizes it. So until Nov 2023 we are pretty much stuck in Florida. Thank you for all the information.

My gf was released at 85% and is under supervison for the remainding 15% of her time. She met with the probation officer yesterday after being released Saturday. Its pretty easy and if she screws it up well then she deserves to go back. She has to get a job, meet once a month and 1 recovery meeting a week for 5 months then totally done.

My husband had been in a number of times he did his 85% and was completely done. I think you only get supervised release if you get a flat sentence and you do gain time on supervised release.

xolady, the conditions to be on CR is listed in the first part of the law/rule. There are several.

Well my husband called today and the release classification ofc called him said papers go infront of the parole commission review board in may to determine if he can come home or not and to figure put what his conditional release requirements will be. The house im in will not make it past inspection, could i go to a hotel that has effency apts and live there? I've been looking for a place to live to be told it won't work after all money for deposits and moving fees it might not all be worth it.

You may need to call the release officer and ask.

Well I called the parole commission ofc and talked to some they say his hearing is may 9th and that iif i move before the hearing i have to write a letter asking permission to move his papers to the new county. Otherwise we are going to be in limbo til may 9th. Which I think is just absolutely crazy. I guess we wait.
