What is a projected release date from prison?

The date that the prison has been told they will release the inmate. It is variable though, and can change based on new crimes being charged while incarcerated or a releasing authority changing the date. A projected release date is the first or next possible date of release in an indeterminant sentence. For instance: if offender Bob's sentence began on 1/1/09 and he received the indeterminant sentence of 3-15 years, his projected release date would be 1/1/12. As mentioned previously, a releasing authority such as a parole board or panel has the authority to change this date, usually extending it. A state's governor or the President may also change this date by commutting a sentence or issuing a pardon.

An inmate is given two release dates, ERD - Earliest Release date and Max Date - Max date. They will get out between this time. Usually the erd as long as they do not have any disciplinary problems. If they get into trouble time gets add, until their max date... Unless they commit felony's inside then that changes the release date completely.

What contemporary problems exist within the US corrections system?

The US correctional system has some very serious problems at the present time. The biggest is overcrowding. There are far more people being incarcertated than the institutions where they are held were desgined for. Not only does this make things difficult for the prisoners, and for the guards and administrators, but it is also very expensive for taxpayers. The correctional system is among the serious expenses that has made is so difficult for government to pay their bills.

Prisons are also notoriously troubled by gangs, drug addiction, violence, and crime of every sort. It appears that the most lawless place in America is the correctional system, which is pretty ironic.

Can you send clothes to inmates in federal prison?

Unless you are referring to underwear, it is doubtful. They are clothed in uniforms issued by the prison system. I only have experience in California state prisons, so I don't know if it applies. They can get packages through certified vendors a few times per year. In their catologs, you'll find t-shirts, underwear, socks, shoes--necessities. The only exception I can think of is if you're specifically sending the clothes in which he/she is to parole in. But they probably have a specific protocol to follow in sending one of those packages. I mean, you can't just buy some syuff at Macy's and send it to them (I don't think).

Where is Carlos Lehder?

Carlos Lehder's ongoing legal battles confirm Lehder remains imprisoned in the US, and that he is not likely to be released anytime soon. On July 22, 2005 he appeared in the US Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit to contest his sentence. Lehder appeared pro se, arguing that the United States failed to perform its obligations under a cooperation agreement he had entered into with the United States Attorney's Office, after he held up his end of the deal. (United States v. Lehder-Rivas, 136 Fed. Appx. 324; 2005). In May 2007, he requested the Colombian Supreme Court to order the Colombian government to request from the United States his release because of the violations of his cooperation agreement.

How many years in prison is a life sentence in the UK?

A life sentence is a "life sentence" regardless of the country in which it is imposed. Generally the sentencing will be, "life without the possibility of parole" or something similar.

The convicted person then will have at least one automatic appeal unless he or she entered a guilty plea, although entering such a plea in the US does not necessarily negate the possibility of an appeal.

Life Sentences in England & WalesThere are 3 forms of life sentence. #1 Mandatory life sentence, which must be imposed following a conviction for murder. #2 Discretionary life sentence is one of more than 70 offences, other than murder, for which the law allows a sentence up to a maximum of life imprisonment (Solomon 2004). This often includes serious sexual and violent offences such as manslaughter, grievous bodily harm and rape. #3 Is the automatic life sentence. Under section 2 of the Crime (Sentences) Act 1997, a life sentence was automatically imposed for a 2nd or subsequent conviction for a serious sexual or violent offence unless exceptional circumstances exist for not doing so. This was phased out in 2005, and replaced by the Indeterminate Sentence for Public Protection, or IPP. This is normally imposed under similar circumstances to the old automatic life sentence, but the sentencing court has a little more discretion than under the old law. There are still automatic lifers in the prison system, and will be for some time to come.

Each person sentenced to life will have a tariff set, which will be the minimum time that they will spend in custody for the purposes of retribution and deterrence. Once this has expired, they will not be released automatically, but will be when the Parole Board assesses that the risk they present to the public has sufficiently reduced in order that it is safe to release them.

On the average a life sentence prisoner spend 13.7 years in prison! Once released they will be supervised in the community for a period and for the rest of their life they are liable to be recalled to prison should they represent a risk to the public. There are approx. 1,500 life sentence prisoners being actively supervised in the community and over 300 were released into the community for the first time in 2003. During 2002, 26 people were recalled to prison, including 7 who had been in the community for 10 years.

Since life sentence population has been steadily increasing over the last 10 years, (a reflection both of prisoners serving longer periods in custody and more people receiving life sentences.) This is like to increase as the impact of IPP sentences increases and the Criminal Justice Act 2003 introduced normal tariffs of 15 years, 30 years and whole life for the offence of murder, potentially increasing the amount of time lifers spend in prison.

How can you marry a prison inmate in Florida without having a ceremony?

Florida has changed its law. Both of you now must go to the county court house and apply together. They no longer let you take the license to the prison, or at least did not the last time I was there checking. Also, the last time I checked, they did not give prisoners passes to get out of prison to get married.

In past years it was possible for a person to get married in the chapel on visiting days. The legislature changed that. Those days are gone.

What is meant by maintaining care custody and control of inmates?

To understand maintaining care, custody, and control of inmates, we will take the words one at a time. We maintain custody by keeping all inmates in the main unit under lock and key at all times. We maintain a higher level of custody in some units by restricting inmates movements. And in certain units, we maintain the strictest custody by keeping the inmates locked up 23 hours a day. How we handle an inmate and where we put him depends on his level of custody. As far as control goes we try to keep inmates under control at all times. We restrict which inmates can go where and in which order. We let Dorm A release its inmates to go to class first. When they are on their way, then we let Dorm B release its inmates. At no time do we say, "Everyone out and go where you are supposed to go. You know what you are supposed to do." Then you get to care. You care for the inmates by walking them to the dining hall, feeding them, and returning them to their dorm. You make sure they get to their bunks and bed safe down for the night. Care means safe. By making sure that you maintain care, custody, and control, you make sure that you will be able to walk out of the gate after 8 hours of work.
