Felon Voting Rights

Felon Voting Rights Felon voting rights vary from state to state.  In some, felons never lose their right to vote.  In most, however, they do.  Fortunately, many of those states restore a felon's voting rights upon the completion of their sentence.  Visit the Collateral Consequences Resource Center to learn more about the rules in your state.  If you are eligible to re-register to vote, visit www.vote.gov to find your state's voter registration information. To learn more about rules and restrictions for felons in each state visit our page here.

Incarcerated Veterans

Incarcerated Veterans Whether it be our neighbors, friends, brothers, sisters, parents, loved ones – many of us have the honor of saying we know someone who served and protected this nation. Our veterans sacrifice a great deal to protect our freedoms in this country. Sadly there are over 180,000 of our veterans in prison. Many are facing mental health issues from PTSD to anxiety, depression and alcohol abuse.  A large percentage face homelessness upon being released. Some researchers even found incarcerated veterans may have a higher risk of suicide. We cannot overlook our veterans in prison as they continue struggling with past hardships. Probation Information Network recognizes the importance of helping our incarcerated veterans and wants to make sure their time through the federal criminal justice system runs as smoothly as possible.  Check out the resources below to learn more about the help available for justice-involved veterans. https://www.va.gov/homeless/vjo.asp …

Voluntary Surrender

Voluntary Surrender Voluntary Surrender is when a federal defendant is not taken into custody at sentencing but is allowed to report to their assigned prison at a later date.  Many federal defendants are waiting at home for instructions on where and when to report.  For those lucky enough to be given this opportunity, we have created a detailed guide that covers how to prepare before Voluntary Surrender, what to expect during the process, and what you will be allowed to bring with you.  Make the most of your time waiting and prepare yourself and your family for your upcoming surrender.  Take a look at our guide, and if you still have questions or concerns contact us to schedule a consultation.  We can walk you and your family through the whole process and bring you peace of mind throughout each step of the way. For more information on Voluntary Surrenders, visit the Federal Bureau of Prisons' Voluntary Surrenders page.
