Hello
This is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard
I am sorry to hear of this matter. Of course, as I am sure you know, the Parole release from the halfway house is all contingent on all programming being completed.
If she and you and her therapist believe she is in compliance, I suggest, you can contact the Parole Board directly and report this to them and have them investigate as to why she is not being released.
