    My husband was transferred to CRAF. The only information I received was that his max date is for 658 days. Does that mean that he will serve his time there or in a halfway house because it’s less than 2 years?

      Hi Tory,

      prisonpath.com does not provide legal advice. We recommend contacting his case manager or better an attorney regarding sentence time.
