Halfway House (CCC) PlacementMost non-violent federal prison inmates will complete their period of federal prison incarceration in some type of Community Corrections Center (CCC) or halfway house. Current B.O.P. policy, as of December 2002, requires inmates to remain in federal prison until at least 90% or more of their sentence has been completed. Only then will they become eligible for a transfer to a Community Corrections Center. The maximum amount of halfway house time the inmate may receive is ten (10) percent of his sentence or a maximum of six (6) months, whichever is less. Of course the passage of the Second Chance Act on April 9, 2008, may affect changes. The Second Chance Act, signed by President Bush, provides that, "the Director of the Bureau of Prisons shall, to the extent practicable, ensure that a prisoner serving a term of imprisonment spends a portion of the final months of that term (not to exceed 12 months), under conditions that will afford that prisoner a reasonable opportunity to adjust to and prepare for reentry of that prisoner into the community. Such conditions may include a community correctional facility." In addition, the Second Chance Act addresses home confinement when it states, "The authority under this subsection may be used to place a prisoner in home confinement for the shorter of 10 percent of the term of imprisonment of that prisoner or 6 months." Until the final determination is made by the Bureau of Prisons as to how they will interpret this law, the only exception to the 90% rule are those graduates of the 500-Hour Residential Drug Abuse Program who receive up to 180 days (6 months) in Community Corrections Centers to complete their term of imprisonment. In certain situations the inmate's length of stay at the Community Corrections Center may be reduced considerably. This would result in even less time of correctional confinement for the inmate. PCG Consulting will explain this process to our clients and help them accordingly.

PCG explains the Community Custody process to our clients including the strict monitoring and rules inmates must adhere to. This knowledge and a strict adherence to the rules and regulations coupled with a complete understanding of the transitional process will prevent the inmate from violating and being remanded back to federal prison for the remainder of his sentence. Although being in a halfway house is so much better that being in federal prison, halfway houses have strict rules and policies that every inmate must follow and observe. Even the slightest violation and the inmate may find himself back in federal prison for the remainder of his sentence. It is important to know these rules and regulations and be prepared for the transition period. PCG will provide our clients with this information.
