View Full Version : No Time Off Allowed in PA for Good Behavior????

02-15-2007, 12:36 PM
Does anyone know how many states grant time off for good behavior and how many don't? I understand that PA does not allow it which is ludicrous with the overcrowded situation in our state prisons. What can be done to get this changed??? Any thoughts?

Hi, BT.

PA county jails have good time; our state prison system does not. Almost every year, a Bill isintroduced in the Legislature to create good time, and it never gets out of committee. Maybe things will improve with the change in control of the legislature this year. There are no such bills pending in the legislature at this time.
