The bill would expand eligibility for the Graduated Reentry Program in the Washington Department of Corrections (DOC) that allows incarcerated persons to serve part of their sentence in the community rather than in prison. Under current law, which was created in 2018, individuals must have served at least 12 months in confinement at a state prison before becoming eligible to serve up to the last six months of their sentence in the community on electronic home monitoring under the jurisdiction of the (DOC.) This bill would reduce the required confinement time a person must serve in prison before eligibility for the reentry program to six months for most offenders. It would reduce the required confinement time to four months for those who are not currently serving a sentence for a sex, violent, or crime against a person offense. .
