My son will be applying for pre-release Feb 13th, 2012. Just wondering how long it should take for him to hear back if he's approved or not. Curosity has the best of me...that and hoping for some good news.

I'm still confused about pre-release and RRRI, and since I have to share one 15 minute phone call (with two other people) that only comes once every 4 days.... I haven't gotten the chance to discuss it with him. My question is.. Can he complete his RRRI program and have his pre-release dates roll back according to his RRRI date or does he have to either use his RRRI date OR his pre-release date. Does that make any sense??

His pre-release eligiblity dates will be based on his RRRI minimum date, so he can "use both," as you put it. Should he be denied pre-release at that point, he will still be eligible for parole consideration at the RRRI date. Should he be denied parole, he can re-apply for pre-release based on his "long" minimum. Make sense?

My husband is at SCI Forest. He was moved last year from a federal prison to begin his state time. He sentence is 5-10 years on a robbery charge. Is it possible for him to qualify for pre release? If so, how much does he has to serve before qualifying?

The doc will tell him if he is eligible.. have him talk to a counselor. Check out the PA doc website for more info.

A state sentence of 5-10 years:

1/2 of the minimum = 2-1/2 years from the day the sentence begins; and
1 year in the state system = 1 year from the day he enters the DOC; and
1 year left before his minimum = 4 years from the day the sentence begins.

Thus, he is time-eligible for pre-release when he is one year from the minimum date of his state sentence. This date will be on his Sentence Status Summary, which he will be given shortly after he arrives at Camp Hill.

FYI: If he is still serving any part of the federal sentence, he will be rejected for pre-release. He can also be rejected due to the violent nature of a robbery charge.

i ont know much about RRRI since we didnt quilify for it , if you read these posts fully im sure itsexplained in detail i thought it was 18 months .

i do know pre release , and on a sentance of 3-7 he would have to serve 2 yrs to be on pre release.

many people think pre release is coming home its not , its moving to a halfway house the last yr of your sentance. still great you can work , earn passes home etc.

Thank you Bobble60 for your information. Thankfully, he does not have to serve any more federal time. We have done all we could to do including a PCRA. At this time, he is focusing on serving his time and doing what he needs to qualify for pre release. We just received some good news as his level was dropped from a 4 to a 2. We have to celebrate the little things. His counselor informed him that if he continues to do well, that he will start the process for pre release towards the end of 2014.

Do the victim's family have any say on an inmates pre-release eligibility? They didn't say anything at his sentencing but I'm wondering if they will be contacted about his pre-release application. thanks.

The DOC contacts the sentencing court, which in turn notifies the DA, who in turn may contact the victim's family. The family's input may then trickle back up to the DOC through this chain.

Under Act 111, pre-release was eliminated for anyone whose minimum date is after May 31,2013. Those already in centers will remain there. those already approved for centers will be sent. All others will be denied.

We've heard some very preliminary information about a new transition program inside the fence at some prisons, but we haven't been given any real information. Stay tuned.

Pennsylvania DOC abolished pre-release a few years ago.
