Q: Boyfriend in jail. On 12/5/17 was released by judge still being refused release by jail on 12/7/17
Electronic Monitoring people are refusing to bracelet him even with a written order from the judge. Todays excuse after taking the $80 money order to pay for the week "We are out of bracelets" he is not getting out today again. Had no problem taking the money for it though. He was told by an EMJ (electronic monitoring company employee) on 12/5/17 (his original release date by the judge) that he didn't care what the judge said he would not be putting a bracelet on him and didnt care if he ever got out of there. EMJ is employeed by the state and releases inmates on bracelets from the jail directly. He is in NJ- I am in TN Also this is on a probation violation from 11 years ago. When he was a juvenile.
A: What I have been told and seen is that they have a limited number of bracelets so they cannot monitor everyone and thus not everyone allowed into the program will actually be put in the program.
A: I would contact his attorney and see if the condition can be revised. Otherwise I agree with M. Aalsberg.
