You are able to serve your prison sentence outside of jail if a circuit court judge places you on probation, parole or extended supervision. This is an outcome that is highly preferable to incarceration. However, in the cases of probation, parole or extended supervision, there are numerous guidelines you must adhere to. The State of Wisconsin Department of Corrections outlines these guidelines. Depending on the details of your case, they may include:
- Getting approval and a travel permit from your agent if you wish to leave the state
- Getting approval from your agent if you wish to change your address or employment
- Getting written approval from your agent if you are “purchasing, trading, selling or operating a motor vehicle.”
