  (2)  A delay in obtaining the documents in subdivision (1) of this subsection shall not be cause for a delay in the exoneree's release from a correctional center.

  3.  The department may provide an exoneree, upon his or her release from a correctional facility, with the same services the department may provide an offender upon release from a correctional facility or an offender who is on probation or parole.
