My ex and the father of my kids revoked himself off probation and is now In prison. He was suppose to serve 3 years on probation but only served 1 year. It's says his mandatory/extended release date is 5/6/2019. What does that mean?
Mandatory release is the presumptive date upon which he would be discharged from incarceration. It is still up to the Department of Corrections to determine, but the presumption is that he would be released back onto extended supervision on that date. Factors to consider are protection of the public, and whether or not he has complied with any treatment that has been ordered. Also, whether or not he is eligible for any early release programs.
This is the date that he is SCHEDULED for release. That date can change depending on a number of different factors.

It is the date he is currently scheduled for release onto extended supervision (which is like probation). As others have said, other factors can change this date.

However, there are hardly sufficient details for an attorney to provide you with some path to follow. It is imperative that ALL of the facts in a particular situation be examined.

To deal with a legal problem, nothing is better than to consult with a lawyer who will give you some time and advice. If you cannot afford an attorney, there should be agencies in your area that can provide discounted, or even free, legal services. For a definitive answer you should seek legal advice from an attorney who (1) is licensed to practice in the state which has jurisdiction; (2) has experience in the area of law you are asking about, and (3) has been retained as your attorney for representation or consultation. Your question and the attorney’s answer may be used for promotional or educational purposes.
That is the date that he is scheduled to be released onto extended supervision. He will not be completely done with his sentence until his extended supervision is successfully completed.
