Can the Navy give supervised probation or parole.?


This person was in the navy, but has served all his time, and then they told him that he might not be released on his official release date because they want him on supervised probation, but if they don’t find a probation officer in time, then he cannot be released.

They can, but they do not have to. I think what you are talking about, is he did his time in the brig. They are thinking of letting him out, and his EAS is coming up, but the “probation or parole” would extend past that EAS.

There have been cases where they have set up for a civilian PO to monitor this person. The civilian PO does not have to if they do not want to. If the area he will moving to has an adult probation department that is already way understaffed, they may say no. If that is the case, they may just keep him in throughout the course of this.

Your EAS, when you are in the military is the date your obligation for active duty is over, provided you lived up to the contract you signed when you joined. If you do not live up to that contract, as in go to the brig, then they do not have to honor that EAS.

It is all in the fine print on the multitude of papers he signed when he joined.

If he has committed a crime and was disciplined under the UCMJ, which I’m assuming he has been or you wouldn’t be asking this question, his release date sort of goes right out the window. They can “release” (court martial) him early or, in what appears to be the case here, can keep him well past his release date until they feel he has fulfilled all the requirements of his punishment. The Navy is not going to release him back into society if they feel he still might pose a threat if he’s not supervised. Keep this in mind, you could be the PERFECT Sailor and if your release date comes up, you can still be required to stay longer, if the Navy (or whatever branch) can show need. They have even more authority to do so over a “bad” Sailor/Soldier.

According to the oath I swore when I joined you can. But if you have been convicted of a crime that requires jail time thus probation you would then have been declared Undesirable for the Military and given a bad conduct discharge . Therefore this person would have served his/her time and be out.

Need more info. Did he or did he not commit a crime? Is he currently in the brig? They can hold you past your end of active duty date if you were sentenced to brig time and that extends past the date. If he was convicted in civilian court then it should be the states problem where the crime was committed.

There is no parole or probation in the US military.

He will have to serve _all_ of his time.

Sure, what did you join the military for? a joy ride? Hint #1: don’t commit a crime in the military.

I doubt it very much, i’ve never heard of it before.

Do you mean restricted duty?
