What is the name of your state? Colorado
I know that walking away from a halfway house is escape. I have gone through tons of files and found probably 100-150 persons who have escape charges/convictions. Probably 95-98% of them were sentenced to an additional 1 year. However, there are a handful who received much longer sentences. Is there any kind of rule of thumb about how long a sentence will be for this type of escape (as opposed to a bang-bang prison escape)? Are the longer sentences for different types of escape or maybe repeat offenders? Does it make a difference if the inmate is in the halfway house on their way out of prison, rather than just a straight sentence to a halfway house?
