    Here are the rules for out of state parole:

    VA DOC - Community Corrections - Out of State Supervision

    In which other states has she been resident? The second option is difficult. Your penpal obviously has been incarcerated for a long time and that will influence a receiving state's decision to take her.

    Interesting thing about Texas, one of my other penpals is being released to her halfway house tomorrow after near 11 years. Of course she being sentenced for drug crimes meant there was absolutely no difficulty in placing her in a halfway house and with family available and it already having reached her home confinement date its just a matter of a couple of weeks at most at the halfway house before she has her job and is back home

    She had a grandmother and cousins that lived in Marietta, Georgia but that was over 20 years back and considering her lack of success so far in finding one to take her in VA it is little surprise she had no luck in GA, AK or 'Our Place' in DC.

    I contacted Virginia 211 info as well as a national organisation -- Freepublicassistance .com to see if they could offer any assistance, although I am somewhat surprised that Virginia CARES could offer no help, granted they are a re-entry program that seems to offer everything BUT housing.

    One must wonder what options those who have committed violent crimes and have no family have outside of trying the old hook some penpal for the sole reason of a place to stay and then do the quick exit the second their paper clears
