Posts Tagged ‘Ankle Bracelet’

I know I have been remiss in writing over the last couple of months.  Lots has happened which has forced me to stay very busy!

I was finally released from my home confinement on November 27th, but not without complications and a lot of work on my part.  One would think that you will be released from you ankle bracelet on the day designated by your probation officer when they first put it on.  Well, not with the probation officer I had.

About a week prior to my designated date I sent an email to my probation officer in order to confirm his availability to remove my ankle bracelet on the designated day (it was the day before Thanksgiving).  Needless to say I did not hear from him.  Two days later, still no response.  This time I opted to call him and leave a voicemail, again, no response.  I then just left it along until November 27th.  Yeah, probably should not have waited.

While I’m still on Home Confinement I just don’t know what is going on. I’ve been told three times that I would have an opportunity to get off early.  However, I’m stuck in a world that just doesn’t make any sense. I was prosecuted out of one jurisdiction, but live in another (a good 800 miles away).  During my sentencing the judge instructed that my case be transferred to my residential area and all post incarceration matters would be handled there.

Here is where the problems come in. While the transcript of the sentencing states it was to be transferred the documented copies of the sentencing says it is recommended and authorized for transfer. This has created many problems; even prior to my release. Because my case was in a different jurisdiction, the case managers at the Atlanta USP had to get a waiver for my probation to be held in my place of residence. This created many delays; which included the inspection of my home for release. My original jurisdiction was required to authorize a “proxy” probation officer. While I was technically under my local area, all information was to be provided to the prosecuting area. (more…)

It’s been six months today since my release from the Atlanta Federal Prison Camp.  So far life is moving on, but not at the pace I was hoping or expected.

It’s been six months and I’ve yet to get a job, my unemployment has run out, and apparently I’m not eligible for emergency unemployment.  Has it been tough?  Yes it has.  It has been one of the toughest things to go through.  One might even say it was tougher than actually being in prison. (more…)
