Exclamation Lifetime Supervision

Hello everyone,

My boyfriend is currently serving time in HDSP. He has 3 years and 10 months to go before he sees parole for the first time. One of the conditions the judge imposed was "lifetime supervision" at his sentencing. Can anyone tell me what lifetime supervision really is. Is it like being on parole/probation? What are the rules to follow regarding alcohol. I know he will be unable to drink but, will he be able to go to places like restaurants or family gatherings where there is alcohol and people are drinking even if he doesn't drink? Any help will be appreciated! Thanks in advance.

Yeah, Lifetime Supervision is like being on probation/parole for the rest of his life. His restrictions, other than the standard (no drugs, alcohol, weapons etc), will be up to his PO and most likely be crime specific (ex: as with sex offenders).

As I understand the alcohol restriction, he will not be able to go bars, even ones that serve food unless food is the primary commodity. Family gatherings....I'm not so sure about except there can be no alcohol if the gathering is at his place of residence.

His PO will have a list of his restrictions and will go over them with him. Your boyfriend will actually have to sign off on them; at least that's how it works here (in KY).

Thank you for the reply! So if the gathering is at a family members house and there's alcohol can he be there if he doesn't consume? I am just trying to get as much information as possible. Our other option would be to deport him and move to his country where we will not have any restrictions and live a normal life

Well where we are you can't be around any alcohol anywhere. You can go to restaurants that serve it but not a bar that serves food. You should look it up for the state your in and see whAt it says.

I'm not sure if he can be around alcohol at someone's else's residence whether he drinks or not I do know that when alcohol is involved sometimes things spiral out of control and the police are called...which, if he's involved (even sober), is a violation in/of itself. He'll need to ask his PO about others drinking at family functions.

I'm not familiar with immigration issues, but can you have him "deported" or does ICE have to do it? Is ICE involved now?

sz1226, please think carefully before allowing him to be deported. If he already has an ICE hold, he'll have to go to immigration, but that does NOT mean deportation. Depending on how long he was in the US, it can be quite an adjustment for them to go home.

After fighting immigration for 4 months in 2004, I convinced my husband not to fight deportation. It was a big mistake. I LOVE living in Mexico, low crime where we are at, and it reminds me of home. My husband had been in the US for more than 30 years, 23 with permanent residency. He could not adjust as easily as I did. Many who are deported try to go back again. They will have friends and family pushing them to return illegally. It's not easy when you're the only one holding them there.

ICE would have to deport him from what I understand. He currently does not have any immigration Hold or anything like that.

Thank you for your reply. We have talked about it numerous times and think the best option is to just start a new life in another country. We both have families in South America (Colombia and Honduras). When he is released he wont have a life here basically. It would be extremely hard for him to find a job, he wont be able to lead a normal life with the lifetime supervision he will have on him. So we just decided if there's a chance to deport him we would just take it and start fresh somewhere else where we can leave this problem behind and start a new life. Do you know if there's anyway to deport him before the completion of his sentence?

No. He will have to complete his sentence first. When ICE goes to get him he needs to tell them he wants to voluntarily deport. He will be deported much faster that way.

I am not saying this is the situation but I am curious. If the offender is on lifetime supervision for being a SO would they still deport them and let them be completely free of everything?
