I don't know if this is the most current directive but it will give you some information. A prior felony will make someone ineligible if it was for a violent crime.
I am a former federal and State prosecutor and have been handling criminal defense and personal injury cases for over 18 years. The above answer, and any follow up comments or emails, is for informational purposes only and not meant as legal advice.
I thought that a predicate makes a person inelligible for SHOCK
Any response I provide is meant as a general view on the subject and is no way intended to be specific legal advice to any individual. If you wish specific advice, you should hire and consult with an attorney of your choosing.
The shock program offered by department of corrections is designed to give a first time felon the opportunity to rehabilitate him or herself. a second time felon will not be considered for shock camp. They are still eligible for merit release as long as it is not a violent felony or sexual by nature or DWI related
Yes, a second time felon DOES qualify for SHOCK as long as the felony is not one of the following:
1. A violent felony offense;
2. An A-1 felony offense;
3. Any homicide offense as defined in article 125 of the Penal Law;
4. Any felony sex offense as defined in article 130 of the Penal Law; or
5. Any escape or absconding offense as defined in article 205 of the Penal Law.
If you need more information, I recommend you ask an attorney or attend the orientation in jail for the SHOCK program.
