What is Supervised Release?
Minnesota has what is called determinant sentencing for felony cases. When a person is sentenced to an executed prison term, the Judge must pronounce the specific duration that the offender will serve in custody. It is presumed that they will serve 2/3 of their sentence in custody (provided they are of good behavior while in prison) and then be supervised for the remaining 1/3 of their sentence upon their release. During this period of Supervised Release, the offender must adhere to various special conditions, as well as a number of standard conditions. If they are found in violation of these terms, they could be returned to custody for however much time remains on their sentence. In Itasca County, individuals on Supervised Release are supervised by the Minnesota Department of Corrections 218-322-2920).
