The Arkansas Department of Correction has a boot camp program for persons who meet certain requirements. These requirements include (but not limited to):
- First time offenders
- Non-violent criminal
- Sentence must be less than ten (10) years
The boot camp program generally lasts from ninety (90) to one hundred twenty (120) days. This time period is vastly shorter than most inmates would otherwise serve before being eligible for parole. Once participants complete the program they are placed under the supervision of parole.
It is important to consult with an attorney about this program if you are looking at a sentence that involves incarceration. A client may be charged with an offense that is not eligible for boot camp. However, in exchange for a plea, the prosecuting attorney can amend the charge and recommend a sentence that will allow the client to be eligible for boot camp.
