(8) for any other rehabilitative purpose the commissioner determines to be in the interests of the prisoner and the public.

(1) the factors in AS 33.30.091 ;

(2) violations, if any, by the prisoner of a condition of a prior furlough;

(d) The commissioner may release on furlough a prisoner convicted of a crime involving domestic violence only under conditions that would protect the victim of domestic violence or other household member.
