That will depend on a lot of factors, what class of felony being the main one. My husband got a B felony and has to do a minimum of 1/4 of the time. His first time down with C felonys he had to do 1/6th. Arkansas prisons are very over crowded as well as a back log of inmates waiting to go prison in the Jail so they are enacting the Early Release Act almost monthly. Once she has gone up for parole she may be eligable for this act.

Have you checked the ADC website to find out her TE date. This would be her release date. They go up for parole about 4 months before this date so a month after that she "could" be sent home.

Hope this helps. PM me if you have anymore questions.
