He is lucky his parole was not revoked with him being sent back to serve all of his time since not only did he simply violate parole but he picked up a new case.
If his parole gets revoked at any point, he will get credit for all time served including the "dead time" in county jail but he is receiving a gift of ISF - WHEN A POSITION OPENS - instead of having his parole revoked. They cannot force a position to be open for him.\
(Compare this to a person who receives boot camp or some other "in custody" "treatment" as a condition of probation. That person must sit in jail awaiting fora position to open even though they are not even getting time - they are getting probation. Makes your husband's situation seem a bit less unfair.)
If he was ordered to do 45 days ISF, he has to do 45 days ISF. He's lucky he's not going to the pen.
