Is there such a thing in Mississippi as "Shock Probation", can only find info for Ohio on it, seems the term has been changed to "Judicial Release". Anybody got any information on this kind of release, or have a web addy I could go to? Appreciate any info. Thanks.

If he is eligible for ERS, it will be granted if all requirements are met for the outside world - it will start with an audit of his record to make sure he is eligible (make sure you understand these requirements - I think they are on the MDOC website somewhere). Then, he must meet housing requirements which I believe include moving in with a responsible person and having a telephone with no buzzes and whistles such as call-forwarding. It must be a phone that plug into the wall - not a cell phone. He must live in MS for the entire time on ERS and cannot cross the state line - there are curfew hours and if they call, he better be there. He will lose the 30-30 while on ERS and serve the remaining time in MS. Good Luck! JG

I would suggest asking for a sentence reduction, but I would say your best bet his him hitting A custody and trying for Parole under the new law that just passed

Dear Jonathan,

I would like to know what my husband chances of getting parole. He has 1 possession of a firearm charge and 2 simple possession to cocaine. He was sentenced to 13 years. He has served 2 years already. He is A restricted, currently attending Drug and Alcohol and has been RVR free for 2 years. Furthermore, do you know what method of selecting the inmates the parole board is going by. The new law requires nonviolent offenders to do 1/4 of their time so 1/4 of 13 will be 3 years and a couple of months and if that's the case in August of this year he will have done 4 years and some odd months with his trusty time. So what do you think we need to do about getting him to go before the parole board?

I do not know the method of selction, I believe it is automated.

As for his eligibility, it sounds as if he is on the right track. He needs to enter all the programs that he can, and stay on the right track.

If he stays at A custody his chances are improved.

Thanks, that's what I thought. I'm confused though. I am supporting a boy at Walnut Grove (not Jones, another inmate) who took a 4-1/2 year plea deal for 2 counts of armed robbery. He was I believe 14 or 15 years old at the time. Anyway, he says that his case manager told him a couple of weeks ago that he is eligible under the new law for early release (85% law). His release date is 7-17-09 and he is now saying she told him he could be released in December, 08 (about 6 months early). He had no information, not even the Bill name or number but did say his case manager told him it applied to him.

I'm wondering, how can it? Isn't armed robbery considered a violent offense. His parents are of no help and are indifferent to him being released early. I told him I would try to find something out, but I feel that truthfully, how can it apply to him? Could he have been classified as non-violent somehow during the plea or sentencing? He was defended by the Farese Law Firm, TN- which I know has quite a reputation. Can anyone help me with this? Did they somehow get him a non-violent offender status during the plea? Do you think I would need to contact the firm?

Red face New law signed by Gov. Barbour recently concerning 25%

I understand that the Gov. of Mississippi just signed a new law about the first time non-violent offenders being eligible for parole after serving 25% of sentence. I have been trying to find this law but have been unable to get a number for it. Does anyone have this information? Would appreciate a copy of this law.

i am not aware of a signed bill recently meeting this criteria
These are a few of the recently signed bills.:

SB2039
- Removes the cap on meritorious earned time.
http://billstatus.ls.state.ms.us/200.../SB/SB2039.xml

SB2880
- Intensive supervision; remove 1-year limitation on placement and the restriction on placing certain drug offenders in the program.
http://billstatus.ls.state.ms.us/200.../SB/SB2880.xml

the link to search for those bills whether alive or not is:
in the HOUSE Of REP
http://billstatus.ls.state.ms.us/2009/pdf/h_cmte.xml
in the SENATE
http://billstatus.ls.state.ms.us/2009/pdf/s_cmte.xml

GO to "corrections" at each link.

Also there are current ER( early release) paroles being allowed only if suggested by the Parole Board from MDOC recommendation. the indication was under 1k inmates , if I remember correctly.

Search the archives here and for ER and those threads can be located.

Hope this helps.

Default Early Release

Based on these two Bills would my fiance be eligible for early release. She is serving a 5yr sentence for Mfg. of Meth; convicted December 2008. She is presently at BCRCF for Long Term A/D program. She has been assigned work at Delta State awaiting her program that starts in September 2009. Her parole date is March 2010.

Can she be approved for early release and placed on house arrest until
parole date? I imagine this would have to be approved by parole committee via MDOC. Am I correct or incorrect? maddogg10

Default Senate Bill # 2039, 2880

Thanks again for info, although, per Bill # 2039, and #2880 considered in 2009 were signed by Governor Haly Barbour. I believe both of these bills pertain to non-violent crimes. #2880 refers to certain drug related crimes. Mfg. of meth was considered violent but is now non-violent. Also Jonathen, a crime of this nature falls into a category for only doing 25% of sentence. This is when parole hearing would take place. A long term A/D program has been court ordered but will not start until September 2009, in which program was missed May 2009. Is there a possibility for ERS or ISP if parole board were to hear a case prior to completing 25%? The crime was committed Nov. 2008 in which incarceration began. MET time and good behavior, no RVR's, during time spent prior to A/D I hope would warrent a early hearing by parole committee. Is this the case? Also one other question, would prior felony convictions with no incarceration hinder ERS or ISP possibilities. There was no mention in these two bills, #2039, #2880, as a hinderence for ERS or ISP by parole board via MDOC. This crime was introduced as a first time offence.

Thanks again for your info, but does your info apply to #2039 and #2880 which were passed in 2009? Regards. maddogg10

ps: Would having an attorney submit a request to parole committee and/or MDOC for possible ERS or ISP?

Default Letters

Hey Jonathan,

My fiance has been placed on the docket for early release and be placed on house arrest(ISP). She is still waiting for approval from a certain committee with decision. Approval or not should be soon. The date for release is June 13, 2009.

I have a few questions. Will her release be granted when she is still awaiting A/D program to start in September? Will approval be denied if A/D is court ordered?

Per this info, if denied would a letter form me or my attorney be helpful in putting her on ISP on the June date? Regarding letter after non-approval could we suggest doing A/D outside at a state funded certified center? This would also be long term A/D program.

Final question, who would the letter go to at CMCF, head of House Arrest Committee? This letter would not mention the court ordered issue or parole date set. If denied it would only include a request base on her MET( good behavior, no RVR's).

I pray each day that she is approved.

Thanks for a reply.

Regards,

maddogg10

Not served enough time - you cannot do much about

The letters are a good thinkg to do regardless - as that will help him. His chances varys - also depends on if he has anyone writing the parole board from a victims point of view - which if they write and show objection to his release then he would likely be denied.

First Question.

It all depends on the judges orders. If she is ordered to complete A&D then she may have to stay untill that is completed.

I cannot answer this questions, as there is really no way of knowing the outcome

It is a 50/50 chance.

She needs to show remorse for her crimes. They will take all incarceration history into account. RVR's, etc.

about 3 months before the Parole hearing you should have Recommendation letters sent on her behalf. You, family, community leaders, pastors, lawyers, doctors, anyone you know with a respected position in the community.

THis increases the chance of Parole.

Your friend should request a "SENTENCE COMPUTATION SHEET".
This will show dates, parole dates and/or ERS dates ( if applicable.)

Good luck!

The court order A/D can b a tricky thing. Does the court order say attend or complete? If it just states attend, I've seen inmates go 2 or 3 weeks and be shipped out. It is possible to do your A/D treatment on the outside, while on ISP or parole.
