Default Re: Shock Jail Time

Once a person is arrested and convicted of a crime, he is sentenced to jail/prison for a set period of time. For certain crimes, the person can be eligible for parole after a percentage of their time is served (usually 1/3 to 1/2 of their time, depending on the state). There are also certain crimes that are eligible for shock probation. The person applying for shock must also meet eligibility requirements which vary by state. When applying for shock, an application or letter is sent to the person's trial judge (usually 6 months after the beginning of a sentence) asking for a special probation (termed shock, as in the offender was shocked by prison into behaving and not repeating the offense). The judge considers the request and if granted, sends a letter (order) to the jail/prison to release the prisoner from incarceration. The prisoner is then released and must begin reporting to the county's probation officer for a period of years. If the person re-offends or fails to report to the probation officer as ordered, shock probation may be rescinded. The offender is then rearrested, returned to jail/prison, and the remainder of the original sentence must be served.
