If an offender’s sentence includes prison time, the sheriff’s office in his county is usually responsible for transporting him to the MDOC intake facility, where he will be processed, assigned a security classification and transferred to a prison. He will serve at least his minimum sentence and complete programming according to the Offender Success Model described in Chapter IV, and then be paroled or released at the end of his maximum sentence. Michigan prisoners lose a number of rights while incarcerated, such as the right to vote. Some rights, including the right to vote, are restored upon release. Others, such as the right to bear arms, are not reinstated automatically, but may be restored with a successful petition.
