Unhappy Hello. Absconder question~ please help!

Hello. I have a question for those in Michigan. This may sound stupid, but I am oblivious to the laws concerning parole and probation. I have been trying to research for weeks regarding a matter. I have a friend that is now absconder1 status and I was just wondering if there was any way to check into rehab or whatever it takes to not go back? He was doing so well for 4 yrs. He lost his job, therefore could not pay his restitution, and I am not 100% sure, but I would bet on the fact that he turned to crack for comfort and release. Is there any alternatives for an absconder? Thank you so much in advance for any and all replies.
Mary

Welcome to PTO! I can't really answer your question but I know that my mans cousin absconded 2 times in 6 months and he is still on parole. They never sent him back to prison. Probably the best thing to do is just turn himself in. Someone else will be along to help you out soon.

Welcome to PTO. I would have him talk to his parole agent and definitely get some help himself to show that he needs help. Have him try Michigan Works for a job or even MPRI in his county.

The BEST thing for an absconder to do is TURN himself in. abscond status just means he missed 4 appointments with his PO in a row. The 1 vs 2 just stand for probation and parole.
Turning himself in is a LOT better than staying on the run. He may receive prison time. My love absconded and was sent to TRV for a 90 day program and then home. If he is a struggling drug addict he may qualify for a 90 day stay at Idrp. Which is a program in ingham county.

There are alternatives to prison but he HAS to turn himself in. And even if he does turn himself in it doesnt guarenty that he will not go to jail/prison..just to let you know.

Thanks for the useful info!!! He called the PO office to find those answers out, just did it anonymously. He wants to stay out for the holidays and then turn himself in.... any thoughts on that? He has been abscond status since 9/23.

Well I don't think it matters much if he stays out for the holidays, but tell him all the time counts as dead time and he will have it added to his parole, so he will have to do more time to make up for it.

that's a long time to risk it in my opinion. I'd think they'd be harder on him if they catch him than if he turns himself in. What if he is in a traffic accident (totally not his fault even) on the way to a family member or friends for a holiday or something? I'd be scared.

Hey there.. welcome to pto and the michigan family. I don't really have the best answer for you.. but the longer he stays out the more time that could be added! Good luck!!

Im sure it is different for everyone, depending on the situation, court, judge, prosecutor ect.

My boyfriend had Abscoded from Probation for 3 yrs. He was caught when he got arrested on a new charge. In his case they didnt charge him for anything but Probation Violation. Since his new charge was something he was def. going to prison for, his probation was terminated anyways. IF for some reason his new charge would have not sent him to prison, He would have had to do a year just for the Probation Violation for Absconding.

I hope this helps.
