[I]When an inmate is released from a Michigan prison, I was old that he could be transferred to the state he is from by paying $100.00 for the paperwork.

What I want to know since I have never experienced this before is, isn't the inmate supposed to get some paperwork or a letter on where he is to go (housing) upon release?

I had expected that he would be released and able to come home. I live (he lives) in California and is in prison in Michigan. He is supposed to be released in a few months and the probation gentleman who handled his case in the courtroom when sentenced said that I could pay $100.00 to have his case transferred to California, if CA. would accept him here.

But I don't know if there are any stipulations or details like, he would have to have a place to go in Michigan in order o be released at all or they will keep him longer than expected.

He still has an appeal open that he wants me to close for fear of staying in jail or going back to jail longer (if he goes through with the appeal).

Where would I find all of this out? Who do I ask?[/I]

Hi Angel, just browsing through threads I don't usually look at, but I will be taking notice in 2 and half years when my pal is released as he is also far from home.

Did you ever find out what will happen?

[I]Yes, Waldron, I did find out.
It's called [B][U]"Interstate Compact for the Supervision of Parolees and Probationers[/I][/U][/B]

All convicted offenders, including misdemeanants, who are placed on parole or probation are eligible to make application for transfer under this agreement. The supervisdion of an offender shall be transferrable to another state if the offender is a resident of the receiving state or has family in the receiving state and can obtain employment there.

Transfer of supervision may also be granted to offenders who are nonresidents and to offenders with no family members in the receiving state if the receiving state consents.

Nonconvicted offenders are not eligible for services under this compact, however, most signatory states agree to grant courtesy supervision.

Yes it is called just that Angel. I was recently locked up and the rules are simple. If the inmate that is paroling out of state does not have any family in the state he is locked up in it does not cost anything then they can parole out of state. The parole board cuts the inmate a check for bus fare and give them a ride to the bus station and it up to him or her to get where they got to me going.

Yes, transfer is possible, and Michigan is happy that one more felon is out of their state & someone else's problem.
What they don't tell you, is transportation is the families responsibility , and you have no later than 72 hours(max) to report to probation in your "home" city, or else you are violated.
So, if the bus is delayed, breaks down or the train experiences mechanical problems, it is your fault basically !
Try taxi from jail (1-800 -TAXICAB or 411 for local cab service) to airport.

If prisoners being released have nowhere to go they are more likely to end up back in the jail/prison system. If you know someone who has nowhere to go and is being released soon try the Homelessness Resource Center (Link: http://homelessness.samhsa.gov/default.aspx). This can help you find a local agency which can find a home for a prisoner being released.
