There are programs, work release, and parole releases but very few apply to violent felony offenses. The prison will advise him as to what programs are available.

    Ohio has re-instituted good time credit, but this will only shave a little time off of his sentence. He can request judicial release after he has served half of his sentence, as is sentence was over ten years. He must get the judge to approve.

    Good time or early release from a prison or any form of incarceration depends on the facility where he is at. Now that he has been convicted and has been assigned to a state facility, that facility will establish rules surrounding any good time release. A motion could be considered to seek his incarceration be changed to a GPS unit or some other form of home monitoring depending on the circumstances.
