he needs to go back. if he does not go back, they will issue a warrant for his arrest. a person on parole cannot leave a state without permission to be received by that state - so GA can and will issue a warrant. if he goes back, they can begin the interstate compact process and he can go back to CT properly.
i understand perfectly. an error has been made. and GA is responsible for his supervision until CT agrees to do it. if the paperwork was not done properly then he is in CT illegally. therefore, if he does not return they will issue a warrant for him and he will be extridicted, held without bond and a parole board member will have a hearing. in the meantime, the interstate compact process does not move forward because he is reincarcerated.
i understand your situation and the dilemna. but there is no way they can get a temp transfer. it does not work that way. CT must agree to take him - and it is done with interstate compact.
it is unfortunate that this has happened. i just had a client who was released from prison early via error of the parole board and she moved to TN and then when the parole board realized the error they asked her to come back. against my instructions she said no. she made them extradict her and of course it went to court. the court held that it was an error - no intent and so she had to go back to prison and will have a hearing at the legal appropriate time in 2011.
my point is, errors happen. and if your son does not return on his own they will arrest him and extradict him back. there is no magic here. sorry.
