If a DOC Officer gave an inmate his sentence with a release date. Can the add more to there to sentence a week later with no new charge like a 3 month treatment program?
1 Answer from Attorneys
Yes, a post release treatment program would normally be the supervised release part of the sentence, rather than the initial confinement. That might make it look as if it was added on, but is instead just a cost of being on supervised release (fka "parole"). Talk the the last lawyer who represented him for the details on the sentence structure.
