28 CFR 2.40 - Conditions of release.

Status message

There is 1 rule appearing in the Federal Register for 28 CFR 2. View below or at eCFR (GPOAccess)
§ 2.40 Conditions of release.
(a) General conditions of release.
(1) The conditions set forth in § 2.204(a)(3)-(6) apply for the reasons set forth in § 2.204(a)(1). These conditions are printed on the certificate of release issued to each releasee.
(2)
(i) The refusal of a prisoner who has been granted a parole date to sign the certificate of release (or any other document necessary to fulfill a condition of release) constitutes withdrawal of that prisoner's application for parole as of the date of refusal. To be considered for parole again, that prisoner must reapply for parole consideration.
(ii) A prisoner who is released to supervision through good-time deduction who refuses to sign the certificate of release is nevertheless bound by the conditions set forth in that certificate.
(b) Special conditions of release.
(1) The Commission may impose a condition other than one of the general conditions of release if the Commission determines that such condition is necessary to protect the public from further crimes by the releasee and to provide adequate supervision of the releasee. Examples of special conditions of release that the Commission frequently imposes are found at § 2.204(b)(2).
(2) If the Commission requires the releasee's participation in a drug-treatment program, the releasee must submit to a drug test before release and to at least two other drug tests, as determined by the supervision officer. A decision not to impose this special condition, because available information indicates a low risk of future substance abuse by the releasee, shall constitute good cause for suspension of the drug testing requirements of 18 U.S.C. 4209(a). A grant of parole or reparole is contingent upon the prisoner passing all pre-release drug tests administered by the Bureau of Prisons.
(c) Changing conditions of release. The provisions of § 2.204(c) apply.
(d) Appeal. A releasee may appeal under § 2.26 an order to impose or modify a release condition not later than 30 days after the date the condition is imposed or modified.
(e) Application of release conditions to absconder. The provisions of § 2.204(d) apply.
(f) Revocation for possession of a controlled substance. If the Commission finds after a revocation hearing that a releasee, released after December 31, 1988, has possessed a controlled substance, the Commission shall revoke parole or mandatory release. If such a releasee fails a drug test, the Commission shall consider appropriate alternatives to revocation. The Commission shall not revoke parole on the basis of a single, unconfirmed positive drug test, if the releasee challenges the test result and there is no other violation found by the Commission to justify revocation.
(g) Supervision officer guidance. The provisions of § 2.204(f) apply.
(h) Definitions. For purposes of this section—
(1) The terms supervision officer, domestic violence crime, approved offender-rehabilitation program and firearm, as used in § 2.204, have the meanings given those terms by § 2.204(g);
(2) The term releasee, as used in this section and in § 2.204 means a person convicted of a federal offense who has been released on parole or released through good-time deduction; and
(3) The term certificate of release, as used in this section and § 2.204, means the certificate of parole or mandatory release delivered to the prisoner under § 2.29.
