Does A probation officer still come to your house when your on mail in probation?

Theoretically yes: a probation officer can still come to your house or visit your workplace regardless of what type of probation you are on. However, in most states if you were placed on administrative probation this normally doesn't happen. Administrative probation basically means you are still subject to your terms and conditions of probation but are not being supervised by a probation officer. If you violate any of the standard conditions of administrative probation, it's the same as violating your probation if you were supervised. However, even under those circumstances, you could still get a visit from a probation officer, although that is extremely rare: probation officers have their own caseloads to deal with.

Parole and Conditional Release

What is life with the possibility of parole?

Generally, a sentencing judge based upon the sentencing guidelines of the state in which the offender was convicted, will establish a minimum time before the offender's case is reviewed by the parole board.

Typically, LWP inmates do not see the parole board or a representative; rather, their files are reviewed and a determination is made.

Primarily, it is unusual for LWP inmates to receive parole in any state.

Can felons get a apartment in boise idaho?

Yes. Clearview Property Management rents to felons without drug or sex related crimes.

It isn't easy, most apartment complexes will require an application with identification and references. Most of them will do a background search and reference check. In the majority of the apartment complexes, upon learning that you are a FELON, your application for an apartment will be denied.

If you get into an apartment by lying on an application by not disclosing that you are a FELON, it can result in immediate eviction and possibly more criminal problems.

You have to put yourself in the position of the landlord to understand the process. I owned some apartments and I required every applicant to fill out an application. I wanted the best renters I could have in my apartments. Ones with good jobs, who could pay the rent on time and ones with the least amount of problems. Wouldn't you? As part of the application process, I met with the applicant and interviewed the applicant. After receiving 25-50 applications I would narrow it down to 5-10. I would read the application carefully and yes there was a box on the application for 'Have you been convicted of a FELONY'. I would contact their references. Do a background search. After this process, I would pick my renter.

Good luck!

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.

Letters Notes and Memos

Citation and References

How do you obtain sample letters of character references for prison inmates?

There is no common format, and if there were, your letter would be treated as a form letter. Your best solution is to type your own words in a standard business format. The format is readily available as a template on most word processing programs. If you do not have one of the Microsoft programs or any other, download Open Office for free.

In your letter, do not state anything that you cannot back up with evidence. For instance:

Mikey didn't do it, your Honor. I know he didn't because he is a nice boy.


Well, the penitentiary is full of nice boys. It would be better to do this (or similar):

Your Honor, Mikey could not have possibly robbed that convenience store on Friday 8 July, because he was mowing my lawn on the other side of town at the exact time the store was being held up. I tried to give my statement to the police, but they threatened me with Impeding an Investigation charges if I tried to tell anyone.

If you give specifics in your letter, be certain those specifics are undeniable, quantifiable truth.

Finally, sign and date your letter and make a copy. When you send it, send it return receipt so you have proof of service. Who ever accepts the letter has to sign and date for it. Or refuse and you then have proof of attempt to serve. (This is just a term to help later if necessary).

Finally, be honest, don't beg, but be real. The judge is human too. You have to appeal to that, but do it naturally. The character reference you give will help, but your friend needs evidence to corroborate his innocence and illustrate the miscarriage of justice that lead to his conviction. You'll notice in my second example above I speak to Mikey's character as well as his innocence.

Can someone be sued for murdering someone and if so what is that civil suit called?

Yes, someone can be sued or held liable both criminally and civilly, for the death of another.

Aside from a murder charge (which is criminal/penal in nature), the surviving relatives of the deceased victim have the right to make what is called a '''wrongful death claim. In a wrongful death claim, the surviving family is asking for monetary damages for the loss of their loved one.''' Yes, that's what happened to O.J.

It is called a Wrongful Death suit.

Yes aside for being a murdering S.O.S. the victim has also had their civil rights violated.

*Also you are not the one who will charge the person fore the murder but the "State, province, country etc." are the ones in charge of that ; But it could be different for different countries.

Liquor
Parole and Conditional Release

Will a drug arrest from 20 years ago affect getting a liquor license in Illinois?

The real question should be: Were you convicted? Being arrested is one thing, going to court and being tried and convicted is something else. If you were convicted and have not been granted a Pardon, you will most likely be denied that licence, as a felon. Apply for a pardon, as soon as you can. Pardon may not have been the right word. In Illinios, if you are convicted of a felony, you will not be allowed to get a liquor license, period. Even if you go through the long, teadious task of trying to be "granted you rights" (ie. right to vote, right to bear arms), you will not be granted a liquor license. Take care.

My husband has been arrested for domestic voilence. Can i remove the charges and have him get released from jail?

I'm not a lawyer, answer is specific to personal experience and knowledge of process in CA and NV. No, both of these states will continue prosecution based on original statements and complaint and report of arresting officer, law recognizes pressure on complainant (victim) and assumes role of complainant (State of CA vs. perpetrator). Even recanting complaint will usually not work and refusal to testify also not likely to work. Advise you let him sit in jail, be forced into court-mandated anger management program no matter how much suffering it causes you. you will both be better off. In most cases and most states when there is a domestic violence dispute with injury or serious complaint, an arrest must be made. Now what most people think is that YOU are pressing charges against a person. However, in reality the state or county is bringing the charges against the person arrested. You have the option to not testify and retract you original statement. However, you cannot force the police/court to drop the charges against him. Often when a spouse/family member/etc. chooses to no longer participate in a trial, it proceeds anyway with the ADA (Assistant District Attorney) as the 'accuser'. Many people who are victims of abuse are not able to see their loved one punished or admit to the abuse so this protocol of the state bring charges rather then the victim prevents victim intimidation/violence and means that more abusers end up being charged, tried, and convicted. You may as I said choose to argue your original police statement was inaccurate BUT most likely the police will dismiss your request and the court would most likely allow the prosecutor to read your original statement to the judge and have it be presented as evidence in his trial, without you present to argue you husband's side. If he has already been sentenced, there are no grounds for you to appeal the decision. Nothing you do at that point would make a difference. If you told the police you made a false statement, they would simply arrest you as well. I would recommend in this case only attempting to clear him of charges if he is totally innocent, has not yet been to trial, and you can get a good lawyer. Otherwise he is going to have to accept the consequences of his actions and you should contact a domestic abuse counselor that can help you deal with the situation.

What are the consequences of burglary in Kentucky?

Burglary is unlawfully entering a building with intent to commit a crime. The crime to be committed does not necessarily have to be a theft, nor does the crime actually have to be completed. If the building entered is not a dwelling then the charge is Burglary - 3rd Degree, which is a Class D Felony carrying 1 to 5 years. If the building is a home or dwelling then the charge is Burglary - 2nd Degree, which is a Class C Felony carrying 5 to 10 years. If there is a weapon involved, or if someone is injured (other than the perpetrator(s) of the offense, or if someone is threatened with a dangerous instrument, the the charge is Burglary - 1st Degree, which is a Class B Felony carrying 10 to 20 years.

If the owners or occupants of the property, and/or the commonwealth, can press charges against you. If the victim drops the charges, the commonwealth may still proceed with the case.

If you are a juvenile, you may be committed to the Department of Juvenile Justice and may be placed in juvenile detention or in a detention alternative placement, depending on the severity of the offense and the determination of the Department of Juvenile Justice.
