Will Pre-Trial be calling my place of employment?Possibly.The Pre-Trial case managers understand that many defendants do not wish their employers to be aware of their arrest. In many instances, work may be verified through a friend or relative or by your bringing a current pay stub to your appointment. However, if you are missing Pre-Trial appointments due to your work and have not provided verification, your employer may be called. Although your case manager will attempt to work with you to set appointments that will not interfere with your work schedule, ultimately you are responsible for making arrangements to meet your obligations to report to Pre-Trial. What happens if I miss an appointment?A missed appointment is a violation of the conditions of your release. Depending upon your charge and other circumstances regarding your case, your case manager may notify the court of a missed appointment. If you encounter circumstances beyond your control that may cause you to miss an appointment, call your case manager to discuss the issue. Your case manager may still require you to report or may schedule another appointment date at his or her discretion. If you are under “Tracking” supervision and are required to call in only, your telephone calls are your appointments. If you realize you’ve missed a call, telephone your case manager immediately. If it is after hours, leave a message and call back on the next business day. Why do I have to submit to urinalysis if I don't have a drug charge?The staff at Pre-Trial supervision is aware that some drugs may stay in your system for a time if you used them prior to your arrest. If you have been ordered to participate in treatment, you must follow through on this order. If the judge did not order you to treatment, Pre-Trial may continue to monitor your use through regular urinalysis, or, if it is indicated you are continuing to use, you may be referred to treatment or a violation petition may be issued to the court.Will someone come to my house?Possibly. Your case manager may make a scheduled or unscheduled visit to your home to verify your address. Will the judge know if I am doing well on Pre-Trial Supervision?Yes! A report is submitted to the court when you are scheduled for a trial, plea or sentencing. The judge may use the information contained in a Pre-Trial report to help determine whether you should remain out on bond pending future court dates or what kind of sentence you should receive. The judge will also be notified if you are violating the conditions of your release. In some instances, Pre-Trial may request that your bond be revoked if you are not following the conditions of your release. The Commissioner released me and told me to call this number.The Commissioner released you to Pre Trial Services and you must call us within 24 hours or the next business day to set up an appointment to come in for your intake interview. Pre Trial supervision is a condition of your bond and is MANDATORY until a judge says otherwise. You will be scheduled for your first appointment in about 1-3 business days and it will be during business hours. You will be at Pre Trial Services for approximately 1-2 hours the first time. During the interview you will be assigned a caseworker and your reporting days. Tips for successful Pre-Trial participation
When are sentenced individuals eligible for consideration for PRRS?Under Montgomery County statutes, PRRS may serve individuals who are within 12 months of release from confinement. However, PRRS generally aims to enroll individuals into its program when they are within 6 months or release, and will enroll individuals for longer periods of time when there are specific needs and benefits.Do I need to be a resident of Montgomery County to participate in the program?No. Individuals serving sentences of 18 months or less in the Montgomery County Department of Correction and Rehabilitation are eligible for consideration for PRRS whether they are residents or not. The program also serves individuals returning from the State Division of Correction who are within six months of release, who have been approved by PRRS screeners, and who will be returning to Montgomery County. Finally, the program has a contract with the Federal Bureau of Prisons and will screen for eligibility individuals who are within six months of release and returning to the Greater Washington Metropolitan Area.What offense charges would rule out an individual's eligibility for PRRS?Individuals with a past conviction for escape from any type of correctional program are ineligible for PRRS. However, the offenses of all candidates are carefully scrutinized, and PRRS screeners will only recommend individuals into the program that can be safely managed in a community correctional setting.Do you take sex offenders? If so, why and what do you do with them?Individuals with sex offenses are considered and placed at PRRS with the belief that the public’s safety is enhanced when soon-to-be released sex offenders can address their reentry needs and avoid post-release homelessness and an inability to support themselves. All individuals with sex offenses are placed on GPS electronic monitoring, complete a registration process with the local police and must participate in sex offender treatment services. As with all residents, they only access the community with pre-approval from PRRS. How do I apply for consideration for PRRS?All sentenced individuals incarcerated in the Montgomery County Department of Correction and Rehabilitation’s detention facilities – Montgomery County Detention Center (MCDC) and Montgomery County Correctional Facility (MCCF) – are considered for eligibility for PRRS on a weekly basis automatically. Individuals must be within the statutory guidelines of having 12 months or less remaining on their sentence, be able to work legally, be free from serious continuing cases, warrants, and detainers, and be able to comply with the rules of a community correctional program.Can I be pre-screened for consideration for PRRS?PRRS will pre-screen defendants who are awaiting sentencing to determine their eligibility for PRRS. The program conducts these pre-screenings at the request of the Court, the State Attorney’s Office, the Defendant’s attorney, and Parole and Probation agent. What actually does the screening (or pre-screening) process entail?The screening process involves several steps including an application filled out by the candidate, a one-to-one interview process that lasts almost an hour where the PRRS screeners will administer a structured questionnaire, the administration of several nationally-recognized evaluations (instruments) that provide a needs and risk assessment, and a complete review of criminal history records. This information is gathered and discussed at a screening meeting where final recommendations are made to the Division Chief concerning placement. In all cases the sentencing judge must consent to the transfer of individuals to PRRSIs their a waiting list of candidates for PRRS?There is no waiting list for individuals sentenced to the Montgomery County Department of Correction and Rehabilitation.Will individuals lose their jobs if they come to PRRS?PRRS will do all it can to allow an individual to continue working with their current employer as long as it meets the program requirements. All jobs must be “legal,” involve a supervisor who is not an immediate family member and who agrees to abide by the requirements of the program (all employers are informed about client’s status with PRRS and their criminal charges), not be involved in the criminal offense, and provide an ability to locate the individual during the course of the day. PRRS Work Release Coordinators assist clients with their job search and carefully evaluate different job possibilities.
What is Home Confinement?PRRS provides services to clients both who are living at the pre-release center and who may be living in their own homes in the home confinement program. Clients eligible for consideration for home confinement are carefully selected for this program and must abide by strict requirements that are the same for those living at the Pre-Release Center. All community activities still require pre-approval and clients must submit to three or more randomly assigned alcohol tests administered remotely each day, must come into the center three times weekly for drug testing and case management services, and are monitored electronically.Employment Assistance for Individuals with Criminal HistoriesIndividuals needed assistance with employment should referred to Montogomery Work.
