My boyfirend was picked up from the house 2/15/08 for a parole violation. He was sentenced for his original crime to two years and told he would do half. On 6/5/08 there was a hearing for time served and he was given CREDIT FOR TIMED SERVED ( 139 ACTUAL + 68 CONDUCT) FOR A TOTAL OF 207 DAYS. Can anyone help me calculate when me and his 7 month old will approximately have him home again?

730 days minus 207 is 313 days to serve at sentencing. Then there's some credits wile he awits transport to CDCR Reception. Once at CRC Reception, he'll have something like 300 days left to serve, and serves 50%, or 150 days of that. Ballpark 1st week of November, but it depends on transport time credits between sentencing and arrival at CDCR.

my fiance was picked up on May 20th. they sentenced him to 9 months with half, he was in county for 2 weeks and then to wasco. do they count the months as thirty days or what? i did adding in two ways and came up with two different release dates. this odd month with half time really has me confused. can someone help me figure out an approximate relaease date. our son is turning 1 on sept 19, i know he won;t be home for that, but i would like to figure out something to ease my mind.

Does anyone know who makes the determination whether an inmate serves 50/80/85% time? Is this something determined by the judge at sentencing? What is the name of the document that states the percent of time to be served? Our final abstract states 5 years, but it does not state the percent of that time that is actually to be served. I understand the difference between county credits and state credits, I also understand violent/non-violent time to serve, but we would like to see an order that legally states percent time to served.
Any form number or name of a document someone can provide will be appreciated. Then I can request a copy from the proper source.
Thank's, Mamalala

It depends on the parole board, and they will contact you. My son wasn't supposed to even get out early he was supposed to stay in until January 2011, but the parole board called me last week, and he has to go up before the parole board in January 2009 and they will decide if he can come out then.

In CA, the percentage of conduct credits is by operation of law, not a court order. There is only a parole board involved if it is a life case, and even then they don't make any decisions about conduct credits.
The sentencing judge determines (or orders others to determine) the local credits earned towards a prison sentence. That includes all local conduct credits. The Judge does not have authority to order a % that's different than what's determined by the State Legislature.
If you know the CA crime, I can tell you the %. FYI: ordinary felonies are 50% once at CDCR. Violent crimes are 15% conduct credit, for state or local credits. 20% conduct credits are strike enhanced sentences. 65% conduct credits are when serving a 50% crime at fire camp. Approx. 33% credits are no-violent crime while in the county jail.

No parole board in CA (except for life cases.) We have "determinate" rather than "indeterminate" sentences. The earliest possible release date can be calulated as of the date of arrival at CDCR, no parole board required.

It depends on the parole board, and they will contact you. My son wasn't supposed to even get out early he was supposed to stay in until January 2011, but the parole board called me last week, and he has to go up before the parole board in January 2009 and they will decide if he can come out then.

Given that sentence, I assume it was a parole violation. (There's no other way to get a 9 month CDCR sentence.) He'd get credits for the 2 weeks credit, unless that time went towards a different case and that other case wasn't the subject of the violation. He also gets credits for his transportation from the local jail to CRCR Reception.
The difficulty in extimating a release date is whether CDCR will given him any conduct credits prior to arrival at reception. They don't have to, but I hear things may be changing.
Being conservative, including transportation time, he'd have around 4 weeks credit if it took him a couple of weeks to be shipped to CDCR Reception. At 50%, that'd leave around 4 mos. to serve. Yes, CDCR uses a 30 day month, so that'd be 120 days.

Thank you, Gryphon. My son had a felony DUI with GBI. First offense, no strike. Received 1 year county (served) released to rehab, did not complete. Ordered to serve the 5 yr suspended sentence.
He's taking college courses and attending SAP. Should he get extra credit for that? Thank's for your help. Mamalala

Gryphon
07-03-2008, 03:14 PM
No extra credit for anything, ever. Not unless teh law changes.
However, SAP can get inmates out of theoir housing and into housing with "a better class of inmate". That happens at the very tail end of their sentence if it is going to happen. I noticed that there's an SAP discussion thread in the CA forum.
In injury would almost certainly make this a violent crime, to be served at 85% (15% conduct credits). The reason for some uncertainty is the subtle distiction between Serious Bodily Injury and Great Bodily Injury. Sparing you an excruciatingly detailed legal argument, it boils down to a near certainty that he's getting 15%.

Gryphon you seem to know so much I'm not sure if you could help me but I would really appreciate any help...my husband turned himself in on 12/11/06 and got sentenced on 12/22/06 was in the county jail until 1/28/2007 late night...then went to reception either the 28th or 1/29/07 then was taken out of reception and got to centinela state prison on 4/5/07.....

His crime is evading arrest casing GBI or death (it was a bodily injury, how that goes into the same category as death blows my mind but anyway...) he got sentenced to 5 years with 1/2 time, so 2.5 years and his release date is 6/23/2009...shouldn't it be a little bit earlier??? Even just a week or two works for me lol

He put in a request for the case analyst in the beginning of May and has yet received a response... what do you think???

Thank you so much!

Gryphon

Sounds like 11 days plus 4 days conduct crdit for local pre-sentence credits; equals 15 days.
Sounds like 36 days credit during transport. (He at a minimum gets day for day credits.)
Total pre CDCR credits are 51 days.
5 years is 1800 days (using the CDCR's 30 day month) minus 51 days equals 1749 days to serve as of 1/29/07. At 1/2 time, that is 875 days until the 1st eligible parole date, or 2 years 145 days. That makes his out date around 6/22/09 by my quick count; (and I'm sorry to say CDCR's date is just 1 day different from my numbers.)
The only way I see it getting better is if he were to reccieve conduct credits during transport; which I've heard rumors about but which I haven't been able to confirm. Doing so would require a reinterpretation of when CDCR conduct credits begin.
I also see possible danger. If injuries were serious, this could have been "violent", in the same way a DUI with injuries can be violent. Violent crime should only recieve 15% conduct credits, not 50%. I hope a review doesn't cause him to lose credits.

5 yrs. minus 18 days local conduct credit is 4 yrs. 347d.
347d. minus transport time of 16d. is 4 yrs. 331 days to serve on arrival at CDCR Reception.
4 yrs. 331d. is 1791d. 80% is 1433d. to serve.
1433d. is 3 yrs. 338d. to serve as of arrival at reception (5/23/08).
Out date is approximately mid May 2012 if I counted that correctly. I didn't double check my numbers, and I didn't count out the days until 1st eligible release date exactly, so you'll want to go back through my math.

16 mos. minus (72d. local credits plus 13d. transport credits) is 16 mos. minus 85d.
16 mos. will be calculated as 16 times 30. That is a total of 480 days.
480 minus 85 is 395 days to serve on arrival at CDCR Reception.
At 50%, that's 198 days to serve as of 6/18/08. 1/31/09 would then be teh earliest eligible release date..

You don't say how long it took to transport him to prison after sentencing, so I'll estimate that as 21 days.
10 yrs is 3650 days, minus 26 days (local credit plus transport credit)= 3624 days.
At 85% once at CDCR Reception, 3624 x .85= 3081d.
3081d. is 8 yrs. 161d. to serve counting from his arrival at CDCR Reception (around 3/2/05), so Earliest Release Date is approximated at 8/10/2013.

He was sentenced to 5 months with half
He went from county to DVI on 7/28/08.

Could you let me know his release date. I dont understand the whole half time and third time. He wrote and said he thinks he is getting out on 9/21/08 but he is not sure.

Do you mean a 5 month sentence, and he'll be getting hLf time applied towards that (or do you mean a 10 mo. sentence, reduced to 5 mos. because of half time)?
For a more precise answer ask if JLS knows when 50% begins on a violation. I'm not 100% sure whether on a violation CDCR is now giving 50% from the date of arrest (and subsequent local housing pending the violation hearing), or whether they are waiting until arrival at CDCR.

CDCR does not have the authority to grant 50% credits for any time served in the county jail, unless the time served is under the direct supervision of CDCR (CCF's for example). Time spent in the county jail on a parole violation prior to the revocation hearing is served at 33% if the inmate is given 50% credits on the revocation. The 50% credits only apply to time served in CDCR.

Gryphon
08-15-2008, 02:57 PM
Thanks JLS.
That means he has 24 days local credit, plus 7 days conduct credit, for a total of 31 days local credit upon arrival at CDCR Reception. He'd have 4 mos. 29 d. remaining. At 50% he has 2 mos. 15d. remaining until Earliest Eligible Release Date. Fom 7/28, that's a 10/11/2008 Earliest Eligible Release Date.

Gryphon,
How come his time at county only counts for 1 day? If he has 31 days local credit how come it is not 31/3= 10.3 days credit. So starting 7/28 why wouldn't he have 2 months 5 days? :confused:

County jail credits, although stated as 33%, are actually calculated as 1 extra day for every 2 days served in the county jail. If he was arrested on 7/3 and received in CDCR on 7/25, he served 24 days actual time and will receive 12 days extra credit for a total of 36 days. 150 - 36 = 114 x 50% = 57 days to serve from 7/28. His release date should be 9/21

Depends on what he was convicted of. If he was convicted of Murder Second, he is a lifer and the Board of Parole Hearings will determine his release date. He will know his MEPD (Minimum Eligible Parole Date), but he does not have a release date yet.

Sounds like your looking at 531 days, right around 17 months, worst case scenario. Best of luck to you guys. :)

JLS
08-24-2008, 04:57 PM
2 years = 730 days - 199 days presentence credits = 531 days left at sentencing - 27 days postsentence credits ( 8/5 to 8/23= 18 days + 9 days county jail credits)= 504 days to serve upon arrival to CDCR. 504 X 50% = 252 days to release, which would make his release date about May 6, 2009.

I was confused about the fire camp 35% time reduction.
Is it 35% of their whole sentence or of the remaining time left, or is it 35% of the ealiest possible releas date?
Could anyone explain how this 35% time works?
Thank you!

JLS
08-25-2008, 01:00 AM
For each day an inmate eligible for 50% serves in camp, he receives an additional day off his sentence. Since he would normally receive 2 days off his sentence at 50% (the day served plus the additional day for the 1/2 time credit), he in effect receives 3 days off his sentence for each day served in camp. It only applies to time served in camp (not their entire sentence).

Thats 86 days credit (local credits plus day-for-day from sentencing until CDCR arrival.). On CDCR arrival he'd have 1 yr. 279d. to serve. At half time that's around 320 actual days to serve. From 8/19/08 that's around 5/13/09 ERD.

From what I've been able to find out, CA 2nd degree murder convictions usually mean that the inmate will not ever be paroled, unless perhaps the inmate is released to hospice care. I haven't been able to confirm parole releases on any 2nd degree convictions, other than for some cases involving women who killed their abusers. I've heard rumor of a vehicular 2nd degree being paroled, but couldn't confirm it.
When defense attorneys advise clients about whether to take 2nd degree murder plea bargains (when charged with 1st degree murder), the advise ifs that in theory a 2nd degree results in less time; but in reality it really may be a lofe sentence. Therefore, there isn't a lot of practical difference between a 1st degree and a 2nd degree.
The firearm enhancement could mean as much as 25 to life consecutive to the 15 to life prison term that second degree of a non-police officer carries. (2nd degree of a police officer carries Life Without Possibility of Parole). That'd mean serving 85% of 35 years (unless the conviciton is very old, back when they recieved 50% conduct credits) to get to teh 1st eligle paroel date; but again that doesn't mean he'd be paroled then.

Using your numbers:
He wouldn't be getting 15% conduct credits from the date of sentencing until arrival at CDCR Reception. However, assuming he was transported to CDCR on the same date he was sentenced, he owed 270d. minus 108d (15% conduct credits) equals 612d. as of our theoretical arrival on 2/19/08 . That makes it around 10/29/09 ERD if I counted that correctly. It is unlikely that he has 9 mos. cerdit while awaiting transport, since 30 days is around average. That makes the likley release date in September '09, and the answer turns out to be "none of the above".

Sorry, I can't follow what's happening sufficiently to estimate a release date. I can tell you that if he only gets 15% conduct crdit, that at no phase of his incarceration will he recieve more than 15%. He can't get 50% credit as you suggest.

If he in fact owed a year at 85%, he had to do 306 days as of 1/11/08; but he might have owed months less than that based on your possible numbers.
Also, he likely didn't recieve conduct credits for the transport time from sentencing until arrival at CDCR Reception. That means he likely does a little longer than those 306 (or whatever number it really is) days.

OK I've got some serious wishful thinking going on and my math is fuzzy. His charges total 52 months, but at sentencing we were told he would only do 26 months as part of a plea deal and stipulated sentence. Does this mean that he got the "breathing credit" from the start, or could he actually be home in 25% time (13 months)?

Thank you all for clarifying all of this for a newbie. This entire path isn't something I forsaw, but I'm grateful for places like this, where I don't have to hide so much and feel alright loving someone on the inside.

What were is presentece credits (including conduct credits?)

What they meant was that if he is in fact 50% eligible (meaning it wasn't violent and there wasn't a strike enhancement), then he'll serve 50% once he gets to CDCR. However, he likely some credits deducted from the sentence because of the local time served prior to being sentenced.

Hi Gryphon,
Can you possibly help me with an estimated release date for my husband because CTF gave him a release date of May 13, 2012 but I think it's way earlier than that.

Thank you so much for all your help.

Arrested: 01/06/2004

As of 07/11/2007 he had: 1290 (actual local time) + 645 (conduct credits) = 1935 (credit for time spent in custody). This is county jail time served.

07/28/07: Was transferred to San Quentin Reception.

Gryphon
09-10-2008, 12:29 PM
He gets credit for local time, including conduct credits, and that time is subtracted from his prison sentence, (unless that time was applied towards some other case).
The % of conduct credits earned in prison depends on whther the crime was violet (15%), or whether it was non-violent and strike enhanced (20%), or whether it was non-violent and no strike prior (50%), or whether it is 50% eligible but working in fire camp (65%).

That's 1961 days credit as of arrrival at reception, and that number is subtracted from his sentence. You didn't mention what the sentence was, nor what it was for. The CDCR conduct credits percentage would depend on the nature of the crime (violent and 85%? Probably not given the local credit calculation) and whether it included a strike prior (80%). Otherwise he gets half time once he arrives at Reception and threafter (unless he gets firecamp and is 50% eligible, and then he begins to earn 65%).

11 years is 3960d. (they use a 30d. month.)
3960-1935= 2025.
2025-16d. (transportation credits)= 2009d. as of 7/28/07.
2009/2 (50% conduct credits, which is correct if the residence was unoccupied. Occupied is 15%) = 1005d. until 1st Eligible Release Date(from 7/28/07).
That's 2 years and 285d., or around 05/09/2010.

you may need to post the day he went to reception. was he sentenced in reception or in county. from the day he went to reception is when his 85% starts. i'm not sure if you have enough information to be able to get to closest date possible. i may be wrong, but i think that info would help you better.

Inmates sentenced to prison for violent felonies must serve 85% of the entire sentence. This means the time spent in county jail is only eligible for 15% credits, instead of the usual 1 additional day for every 2 days incarcerated.

886 x .15= 132d.conduct credits.

The new case added 2 years to his out date, but he may very well have lost quite a few conduct credits as the result of an administrative action. Those possible lost credits could make his out date significantly farther away than the 2 additional years.

His time starts on the day of sentencing. Which you have as March 27, 09.
16 months = 480 days - 50% = 240 days (approx 8 months). So his approx. Earliest release date would be Nov 22, 09.
Which is 240 days from March 27, 09. This figure is without time served credit. You didn't mention any credit for time served, if there is any credit for time served it would make his release date sooner.
I hope this helped!! :D

Hello. I have a question about my husband. He was arrested on 2/6/09 and was sentenced to 16 months at 50% on 3/27/09. He was transferred from the county to DVI reception on 4/13/09. I've tried to figure out what his release date will be and I think somewhere around Sep 3 09. Someone explain and help PLEASE! Thanks in advance.

Do inmates get different credit for the time spent in jail versus time prison? My bf keeps saying something about 2/3time in jail and his 50% doesnt start until he in prison? He is waiting to go upstate but has no idea how everything is calculated and he keeps hearing different things.

Also how do know how much time served credit he has recieved? My bf was arrested on 3/29 sentanced on 4/15 to 10 months with 50%.

In addition the inmate information system does not indicate a release date for him, when is that updated?

If the crime wasn't "violent, and if he didn't admit to having a strike enhancement, then he gets 50% once he gets to CDCR reception, and he gets 65% conduct credits if he goes to firecamp. He'd only get approximately 33% conduct credits for local jail time.
18 days local credit means 6 conduct credits. He'd also get at least day for day credits from sentencing until arrival at CDCR. These credits are subtracted from his sentence, and then he does 50% of the balance once he arrives at CDCR.

Sentenced on 11/22/09 to 2 years with 50%
Got 91 actual days plus 41 credit as of 11/22/08

I have been reading these calculations to try and figure out my daughters release date and I'm confused. I even tried a calculator. To think, I passed college algebra. My daughter was sentenced to 16 months on 5/29/09, they gave her 4 months credit. She is supposed to do 50%. My thinking is 50% of 16 months is 8 months, she has credit for 4 months, that would leave 4 months. Am I even close? Then I hear they are doing 33%, not 50%, which of course I think is just wishful prison thinking. Can anyone help? I am raising her 2 small children. The baby probably won't remember her but the 4 year old is asking questions. I just tell her she's in school. I think that was stupid of me because now she doesn't want to go to school, she thinks she won't come home.

Please help me. I work for the courts and still can't figure this out!

Your calculations seem right to me. As for 33%, that IS wishful thinking right now. There has been no cut to the time yet but we are all crossing our fingers and saying our prayers.

It's hard when little kids are involved because it's tough for them to understand. We have a 2 year old and my husband was arrested right after her 1st birthday. Take them to visit if you can and show them pictures all the time. I tell my daughter stories about her daddy all the time and she talks to him on the phone every night.

I applaud you for what you are doing. :thumbsup:

Yes, they get one for one, two for one or 3 for one. Meaning, for every day he spent in the county he could possibly get 3 days. So if he spent 90 days in, he will get a total of 270 days credit if given 3 for 1.

Do inmates get different credit for the time spent in jail versus time prison? My bf keeps saying something about 2/3time in jail and his 50% doesnt start until he in prison? He is waiting to go upstate but has no idea how everything is calculated and he keeps hearing different things.

It depends, how many days of credit was he given in the county. It sounds like this is his first time. Was he given 2 for 1 credits, 3 for 1. Lets say he was given two for one credits. He was arrested on the 1st, sent to prison on the 27, thats 26 days. If 2 for 1, he has credit for 52 days.

Totals days to serve.................. 487..................... 16 months
Total county time given............... 52..................... if given 2 for 1
totals............ 435.................... Days left to serve

Now figure it out 50% x 435 = 217 days left good scenario
65% X 435 = 283 alright scenario
80% x 435 = 348 worse scenario

like I said, I am assuming this is his first time and he will more than like only serve, 35% of his 50% sentence..... which is about 76 days. But to give you a batter answer, we need more info. Hope this makes sense.

You are very welcome! Yes, I take my daughter to visit her dad every other weekend and she loves it. Of course he spoils her with all kinds of candy and juice and I let him do it because it is all he can do right now. The prison my husband is at has a playground and he takes her down the slide and she will tell anyone who listens how her daddy took her on the slide and she says "weeeeee". She is young enough that she does not understand where she is at...all she knows is that she is with her daddy and that's all that matters.

kima
06-04-2009, 08:41 PM
Mercene, It sounds like the 33% is the credit she got for jail time, since that's what it's calculated at...how long was she in county? If she was in county four months (120 days), she'd get 33% of that time in actual credit: 36 days of credit towards her prison sentence.

Example: Sentence of 16 months (aprx 480 days), less 36 days jail credit and 120 days actual jail time =
294 days @ 50% leaves 147 days left to serve (about 5 months).

On an 85% crime (violent felony by definition), he only gets 15% conduct credit in both the county jail and state prison. he doesn't get more credit in the county jail when it is an 85% crime.
Conduct credits ALWAYS happen as a matter of law. They are not a subject of discretion in CA.
He'll therefore do 85% of the 5 years, and you can calculate the out date from the date of his arrest.

Attempted murder is a violent felony per PC 667.5(c), so it is an 85% crime.
There is no opportunity to get out early under existing CA law, other than the conduct credits he's allowed to earn by statute.
If this was a plea bargain, he likley waived his right to appeal. He'd still be able to Writ if there is a suitable issue (based on some sort of Constitutional error). If he was convicted after trial, appeal is automatic once the Notice of Appeal is filed.

He gets some additional credit from sentencing until CDCR arrival. Lets say that is 4 weeks. If so, he has a year and 1 mo. credit on arrival at CDCR, and then serves 50% of the balance of 1 yr. 11 mos to serve; or 11 mos. 2 wks.from arrival at CDCR.

JLS
06-09-2009, 01:06 AM
On a 4 year case, with a years credit (364 days) plus another month credit until he arrives at CDCR reception (13 months total credit), He will have about 2 years 11 months remaining at 50% which is 1 year 5 1/2 months from reception.

I think that he's most likley end up serving longer, but not at prison.

It is clear that he gets 50% conduct credits once he arrives at CDCR. It is clear that up until sentencing he gets around 33% conduct credits.
However, I think he should only get day for day credits from sentencing until arrival at CDCR. Despite this, I've been told that CDCR has at least sometimes calculated good time credits from sentencing until CDCR arrival; and that makes it possible that he'll get conduct credit for his post-sentence county jail time. I can't give you authority for why he ought to get conduct credit because there isn't any. If they are giving conduct credit post-senencing and pre-arrival at CDCR it'd be a new interpretation of when CDCR custody happens.
He could be paroled from the local jail, or he could do his time and still not be released until he is transported.

Assuming he isn't serving another sentence, I'd say that the county jail never got his sentence abstract so he has no transporation orders. The sentencing court can fix that in 2 seconds, and if the trial lawyer can't get it done informally (it probably takes 2 phone calls, one to jail transportation and one to teh court) a court date can be set.

You need to talk to the COUNTY jail transportation department, not the State Prison Transportation Department.

have your son be teh one who contact the attorney. Do it in writing, and have him send it to you so you can forward it Registered or Certified. If he doesn't promptly respond, do taht again, this time cc to the State Bar with a letter asking them to require that teh attorney contact his client (and cc that bar letter to the lawyer.) That'll get a reply. No one wants hate mail from the State Bar.

Gryphon

You were probably reading about what happened when CDCR miscalculated sentences, and then went back to make the out date farther away. Yes, that can happen. Also, if there is a loss of conduct credits, then the out date can be recalculates.
The Earliest Release Date is exactly what it sounds like, althoaugh that Eartliest Date can change for a few reasons, such as sentence error or disciplinary actions.
On this setnence, she has credit for 2 mos. and 9 days, oplus she also had credits from sentencing until arrival at CDCR Reception. If it took 3 weeks to get her to prison, she has around 3 mos. credit on arrival, or 13 mos to serve. At 50% she'd have 6 1/2 mos to serve upon CDCR arrival around 3/21.
That's around late September to early October as a ballpark, depending on what those transportation credits actually were. I bet that ERD 9/30 is correct.

Do they always use a 30 day month, or can they opt for a calendar month? He was sentenced to 4 years 4 months at 50% time. He left on 11-2-07 and was initially told his release would be on 1-2-10 (26 months later). According to the state of CA his time should be calculated on 30/month which would put his release on 12-22-09...home in time for Xmas and his youngest daughters birthday. He requested a calculation of time and it still shows 1-2-10 as the release date. Is there anywhere else official I can go for any sort of explanation?
Non violoent, non-strikeable crime. county from11-2-07 to 11-6-07, DVI from 11-6-07 to 3-20-08, and CRC from 3-20-08 to present. Heck it'll save the state a little bit of money letting him out 12 days early and I'm more than willing to drive the 12 hours to pick him up. What kind of mountains do we have to move?

Robbery is a violent crime, so he only gets 15% conduct credits for both county jail and prison. That means his 15 years is reduced by 15% if he doesn't lose nay credits along the way. That's over 12.5 years to serve from the time of his arrest in 5/08.

Hello All,
I believe that there is some confusion regarding calculations of release dates. I will explain this (2) different ways, as best I can.

1) If your loved one is a violator and sentenced to lets say 12 months with 50%.
The credit at 50% will not start until the day he hits reception.The days spent
in County count as day-for-day credit. FYI: I'm speaking of Parole Violators.

2) If your loved one has a new commitment of lets say 2 years at 50%. The
50% is credited from the day of arrest. Some inmates end up with additional
credits from other brief periods of incarceration. Example: Your loved one is
arrested, spends a few days in jail and the charges are dismissed. They may
receive credit on the new commitment for those few days. FYI: New
commitments and Probation Violations.

I hope this helps. :)

JLS
06-27-2009, 02:30 AM
Scootz, your information is incorrect. For all inmates or parole violators eligible for 50%, time spent in the county jail is credited with time served plus one additional day for every 2 days served ( referred to as 33% credits). The 50% credits (one additional day credit for every 1 day served) starts for everyone eligible for 50% when they arrive at the reception center. All presentence credits must be granted by the judge and reflected on the Abstract of Judgement. CDCR will calculate all post sentence credits and conduct/behavoural credits from date of sentencing thru release.

For all inmates or parole violators eligible for 50%, time spent in the county jail is credited with time served plus one additional day for every 2 days served ( referred to as 33% credits). The 50% credits (one additional day credit for every 1 day served) starts for everyone eligible for 50% when they arrive at the reception center. All presentence credits must be granted by the judge and reflected on the Abstract of Judgement. CDCR will calculate all post sentence credits and conduct/behavoural credits from date of sentencing thru release.

I have been trying to calculate a release date by reading the forums and the only calculations I have been able to get is that I am lame when it comes to numbers. Here we go, arrested on probation violation march 12, 2009. Sentenced april 1, 2009. Entered recep. May 27, 2009. He got 333 credits by judge. I believe it was 18 mos to serve. He got felony probation violation. There were no strikes given. I appreciate any help.

You need to provide a little more info. IF he was given 18 months to serve and given 333 days credit (which by the way is a lot for someone who was busted March 12th and sentenced April 1, 2009). Normally most counties are only giving 2 days credit for every one day served, or 3 days credit for every 1 day served. At the most he could've gotten 57 days credited, instead he was given almost a whole year. It sound slike he was given a 3 year sentenced and is to serve 50% which would be 18 months.

Thank you Gryphon.Prayed you would be the one to answer me.Your so helpful to this community at pto.. your a blessing. To me its a non-violent crime..not registering with your probation officer but is this how the law sees it?? I was thinking end of july or early august he would be released..not based on my math but on my gut. He did get felony probation violation..which seems worse then a regular violation but there was no violent act on anyone.

His prison sentence is for the crime that he got placed on probation for, not the act that violated the probation. Also to calculate a release date, the original length of sentence is needed.

3 years=1095 days-333 presentence credits = 762 remaining at time of sentencing. 762 days - 81 days (57 days actually served in county jail + 24days good conduct credits)= 681 days remaining when he arrived at Reception. 681 x 50% = 340 days to serve in CDCR, which puts his release date around March 10, 2010.

Ok, first of all hello to everyone! I posted my question in the wrong place i think...=) I need to know how to calculate my husbands release date. He has been in custody since 07/07. He was finally sentenced on5/20/09 to 5yrs. He was transferred to wasco on 5/28/09. At his sentencing he was given credit for 1020 days.. He said they did not tell him if he was going to serve 80% or 50%. How and where do I find that out?

07-01-2009, 05:12 PM
is it his first time, if so 50%.


5 years times 365 days, equals 1825 days, minus 1020 days for credit given, this leaves 805 days, divided by 2 (50%), this leaves 402 days to serve, plus he will still be given credit for his prison time. So a little less than a year.

You need to figure out his conduct credits in order to estimate his earliest release date.
CDCR Conduct Credits:
If he admitted a strike enhancement (doubling his prison term) on a non-violent crime he does 80%.
If there is no strike enhancement and it is a non-violent crime it is 50%.
If it is by definition a violent crime, he does 85%.

Add 8 days to his local credits of 1020 (Are you certain? That a lot.) He has around 797 days to serve when he arived at reception. Then, once you know the correct conduct credits you can estimate an out date.

Thank you very much for answering my question. Yes im certain he has that much credit. Like I said he has been in since 7/07, and he finally took a plea deal. As far as a violent crime... im not sure. The plea deal was for conspiracy to commit a crime... Does that mean its violent????

Conspiracy to do a violent crime is violent, so it depends on what exactly he was conspiring to do.

i'll give this a try. you don't say whether he received additional credits for his time in county but since it was a short time i'll assume it was just the time waiting to go to wasco, therefore day-for-day, but correct me if i'm wrong! so...

11 days in county

arriving at wasco 1095 days (3 years) - 11 = 1084 days remaining and at 50% = 542 days

time spent in wasco = 41 days so 542 days - 41 days = 501 days remaining when going to ccc

time spent at ccc = 170 days so 501 days - 170 days = 331 days remaining when going to fire camp

arriving at fire camp = 331 days remaining at 35% = 116 days remaining (his 35% time begins once he gets to fire camp)

so there are 116 days remaining to serve on july 21 which puts his out date at about november 13, 2009, just before thanksgiving :)


i'm never sure on how they calculate months (if they actually count the days or if they consider a month 30 days regardless of the actual number of days) so i may be off by a few days but this should be about right. however if someone else knows better or sees a mistake please correct me :)

hope this helps!

3 years = 1095 days

1095 - 307 days credit from county = 788 days remaining at sentencing

788 - 39 days waiting to be transfered to state = 749 days

749 x 50% = ~375 days remaining at arrival at reception (when 50% begins)

so that makes his out date a little over a year from now around July 25, 2010 by my calculations

(not sure if this is exactly right like I said in some of the other posts, but it should be close) hope this helps :)

ccarcar1, looking back at this i've just realized that my estimate on your husband's release date is probably off... i'm really sorry! the first time i calculated his time at 50% and THEN took 35% of the already shortened sentence but rather i would guess they would go back to the TOTAL time remaining on the original sentence and take 35% of that... if they do it that way, which i feel they probably do, then i THINK his release date would instead look like this...

11 days in county

arriving at wasco 1095 days (3 years) - 11 = 1084 days remaining

time spent in wasco = 41 days so 1084 days - 41 days - 41 days good time credit (his half time credit) = 1002 days remaining when going to ccc

time spent at ccc = 170 days so 1002 days - 170 days - 170 days good time credit (his half time credit) = 662 days remaining when going to fire camp

arriving at fire camp = 662 days remaining at 35% = ~232 days remaining (his 35% time begins once he gets to fire camp, so 35% of the TOTAL remaining sentence)

this instead brings his release date to March 9, 2010

i'm sorry again for the miscalculation but i wanted to let you know incase this is how they do it, i didn't want you to get your hopes up! this is still much better than doing it all at 50% as it saves him 3.5 months. sorry again if i got your hopes up!

My husband is still in north county correctional facility, part of los angeles county jail. I haven't been able to get in contact with the cdc (I refuse to put in rehabilitation because california prisons rarely do) and no body can give me a specific answer.

is he half timer (50%)? if he is, he can go to camp and once he gets there, his time will be reduce to 35%, if he is doing 80% to 85%, than no he has to to do the time, how long did he get? non violent with half time, if thats the case, yes his time will be reduce, hope I helped a bit, good luck. God bless.

his calculation:
24 months/50%=12 months-4 months=8 months

my calculation:
24 months-4 months=20 months/50%=10 months

can someone tell me which is right (or if we're both wrong). also, how much time off could he get for good-time credit?

you're right (he's wrong)! more specifically you'd do 24 months-4 months and then subtract the time it takes for him to go to reception, then do 50% of whatever that is. it's total time minus all the county credits/days he spends there and then the day he gets to reception they begin the 50%. so ya, long story short, you're right :)

and as for good-time credit, that is what the 50% is. he only gets his 50% credit if he stays out of trouble. they can add days if he gets in trouble. if he goes to fire camp then he only has to do 35% time.

k so my bf was sentenced on Jun 18.Previously he signed a 3 year joint suspension sentence and the deal was If he violated probation again thats what he would get.Now he violated probation by failing to complete all of his anger management classes for a case that was in 05 and is being dragged out.Hes completed half of them but was an idiot and got lazy thinkin it would just go away.But anyways he has alot of good time on the case being how the case happened in 05 n he served time then for it and hes served 5 months in county for it.So all in all his sentence came to 8 months.But im trying to figure out whats his halftime?would that be four months?I have no idea.He was transferred to DVI on June 30.Any help would be awesome!sorry this was so long!:D

His time starts on the day of sentencing. Which you have as March 27, 09.
16 months = 480 days - 50% = 240 days (approx 8 months). So his approx. Earliest release date would be Nov 22, 09.
Which is 240 days from March 27, 09. This figure is without time served credit. You didn't mention any credit for time served, if there is any credit for time served it would make his release date sooner.
I hope this helped!! :D

i can try to help you figure out the date, but i'd need to know if he's serving 50% of his time (if it's a non-violent crime and he has no prior strikes), 80% of his time (if it's a non-violent crime, but he has a prior strike before this event), or 85% time (if it's a violent crime). if you can tell me that info then i can try to help :thumbsup:

ok so then by the way i understand it it would look like this:

16 months = 480 days

480 days - 39 days credit in county = 441 days

441 days - time waiting to go to state (21 days) = 420 days remaining when arriving at state

420 days x 50% time = 210 days remaining as of march 4, 2009

so then by my math that would put his release date at september 29, 2009

hope this helps and if anyone sees any mistakes please feel free to correct me!

i really don't know sorry. i'm really new to all this, i just understand the math behind the calculations that people explained. i've never really heard about getting days off any time over the typical 50%, 80%, etc... i have heard about people being told wrong release date (due to CDC error) and having them be corrected sometimes just days before people are to be released. but at least it's only a 10 day difference either way. hopefully it's right and he'll get out early tho!

Greetings Good Peoples!

I have a question, my husband was sentenced to 3 years for a bogus accusation. He has already served 18 months-before he was sentenced to the 3. Our Public"Pretender" told us that he has 10.5 months left to serve. I'm assuming that the 10.5 was with the 85% for the State of California. Does anyone know how that works. He was sentenced in July, but they have not moved him to State yet. I was told from other people that the 85% does not start until they hit State Prison....:confused:

Now for the ??? if that is true does it mean that he will do 85% of the 10.5 months? How does that work....

Welcome, Moon Willow. I don't know the answer but I am sure someone will be along soon who will have the information.

Just FYI this post is for calculating federal time and i think even that is possibly outdated from reading some of the more recent posts in the thread (it's 2 years old but I'm not positive I don't know anything about Federal prisons!)

To the moon willow, the way it works is when you go to sentencing the judge will give them credit for their days served while in county and then other good time credits (I think it's 15% extra for violent crimes, or those that only get 85% credit). So from what I've read, it seems like people with violent crimes do 85% the whole way through but this is how I think it would be calculated:

He should have been told his credits at sentencing. So from that you'd take the total sentence (3 years or 1095 days) and subtract the credits he was given (18 months = 540 days) so without any extra credits then he'd have 555 days left. If it is 15% extra credits in county that they get (which I'm not positive) then he'd get an extra 81 days off of that bringing him down to 474 days as of the day at sentencing. Then you subtract day for day (no extra credits) for the amount of time he waits in county after sentencing before going to state. You said it was in July, so just for easy math's sake I'll assume it's been 30 days but substitute whatever the real number of days is. If it's 30 then it would be 444 days remaining to serve arriving at state. Then 444 days x 85% = 377 days left to serve which would be slightly over 12 months including good time credits.

So I honestly don't know where he got 10.5 months.... Maybe someone who knows more about 85% or violent crimes can come by and provide some insight if I did something wrong in my calculation!

I was wondering if I have been doing my husbands calculations correctly, this is what I am doing.
365 x 5 =1825
-180 days county credit= 1645
1645 x .50= 822.50
822.50 - 150 days until he arrived at fire camp= 672.50
672.50 x .35 for his new camp percentage= 235.38

So what I am getting is that he only has 235.38 days left as long as he stays in fire camp and does not have to go back to the prison for any reason and then the calculation would change of course. He has now been in fire camp for 134 days out of the 235, am I correct he only has 101 days left? Thank you very much for any info anyone can give me I really appreciate it, this has been driving me insane for months, guess I should have thought about posting this sooner, lol. His first camp counselor forgot to give him the 180 day county credits and put his out date around march 28th 2010 and now his new counselor said the calculations look wrong and would let him know what he comes up with, THAT was almost two months ago. It doesn't get to my husband as much as it does me though, he knows he is on the downhill and has been out on fires alot so he isn't stressed about it, lol.

Ok, let's see, my husband was arrested on 7/21, on 7/23 he was taken to DVI to waiting for board to let him know how long he was gonna get. On 8/4 he took a deal for 7 months flat. So do I go from his arrest date, or the transfer date? I was figuring he would probably be released on Feb, 9th. Is this accurate?

Arrest date. This is for a violation right? If so then yes, from arrest date.

i'd be curious to find out how they calculate this, too, because to me there are 2 ways to figure it out. one way is the way you did it, which if that's how they do it definitely seems mathematically correct to me. i was trying to help someone figure out time for fire camp before and that was how i did it at first, but the thing that makes me think it might not be right is that instead of taking 35% of the actual sentence you're taking 35% of an already halved sentence. i don't know if i'm explaining it well! but this would be the other way i think they might figure it out:

365 x 5 =1825
-180 days county credit= 1645
1645 - 150 days served in state - 150 day for day credit (which in essence is what "50% time" is) = 1345
1345 x .35 for his new camp percentage= 470.75 days remaining upon arriving at fire camp

it just seems kind of weird to me that they'd give so much extra time for fire camp (doing 50% and then another 35% after that) and it seems more likely that they'd figure it out this way... but your way could be totally right! hopefully someone else who knows for sure can come along and say, but i think at least it would be one of those 2 ways.

See that is one thing I was considering also, but I don't think they do because my husbands first counselor said he only had alittle under ten months left after getting to fire camp. With the calculations like this he would have been doing the majority of his half time sentence and it would have been only a around 3off of original release date. The less than ten months was without his county credits also, they forgot to give them to him at first.

this is the first time my husband has ever been to prison. yesterday he took the deal for a two year sentence. as of today, he has 304 days credit and i'm sure he gets half time cause he has no violent charges. since its his first time in, does he get all his credit? some people are telling me that its up to the judge and some are telling me that he should be getting all of it cause its his first time...i'm hearing so many different things and i just wanna be sure...thanks everyone!

he should be getting credit for ALL his time, he should really make sure he does he can talk to someone when he goes to court about it. my boyfriend has gotten credit for all his time both times he's been to jail.

09-09-2009, 11:02 AM
really? ok cool! thank you so much! is it true that they can only get so much of their time? cause i heard that once you reach a certain amount, the judge won't allow you to recieve more than that amount. like for example someone would have like 560 days credit but they only can get like 200...is that true?

09-09-2009, 12:32 PM
welcome.. no i think once the judge agrees to credit them for time served, they count all of it. like my boyfriend had 5 months in when he got credited for that, but he's been gone another 3 months too so all that counts as well. plus however much longer he'll be there. hope that helps, im not sure how you would calculate his release date tho!

From what I understand, he will get all his credits. As for his release date, he was sentenced to 2 years which is 730 days minus 304 days credit so he has 426 days left. He has no violent offenses then he will get 50% off his time for good credits and that would leave him with approximately 213 days left to serve....that would make his release date around the middle of April 2010.

A couple of pages ago I posted asking about release date..JLS& gryphon so kind as to respond. Hope one of you will help me again. We did get EPRD and it was listed as Nov.30/09. Now I get a letter from my guy saying he finally saw his counselor(about 100 days in reception) Now counselor saying April 2011?? Is it possible there is a mistake? Which is more likely? A generated form from sacramento or a counselor? At a loss here. Is this common? Quite a big difference in times...seems so strange. Thanks and blessings.

This is the correct way to figure it out for fire camp. You take the orginal sentence minus the credits then you subtract the amount of days until you get to fire camp and then the day to day credit then you apply the 35%. So in essence it is not 35% of what you think you have left it is 35% of your orginal sentence less the days and credits you already have done. I hope that made some sort of sense.

Going to court on Monday to get records/transcripts..that day was a blur to me, truthfully. Found out the man I loved was going to jail for probation violation...for something that happened when he was 19. A country kid in big city who meets a girl who he thinks/told is 18 and is really 14. Miley Cyrus comes to mind. They didnt even "do" anything. Make-out and touch...nothing more. So now 1 yr. left to complete his probation and he gets violated on a technicality..when there is video proof that he was where he was supposed to be. But does that come into court by the lawyer? (I hired instead of public defender maybe she would have been the right one) I was duped and propositioned all in one week. Lawyer I hired mentioned "he and is wife had an open relationship..I should find another man.."a few totally unproffessional remarks but I was too scared, lame,niave to fire him right away after that. Never told my boy-friend til later. Then of course wouldn't you know it, when the lawyer and the judge sent him to the river I walking back to my car discover my keys locked in. I just sat down in my nice dress on the floor/curb and cried. A passerby stopped to help...as I was saying God bless you for stopping and helping me..like the good samaritan he proceeded to tell me he stopped for my legs..I said thanks and was hightailing it back to drivers side. As I was getting in he said he wanted to show me something me...fall for it keep distance but come to his passenger door..he pulls out..well you know...I think here I am two blcks from court house and its this guy who should be going to the river not mine. Im venting..it was a weird day. I will get exact words credits all of that. Still feel its odd that even with JLS's calculations and not the EPRD that it would come out now as 2011. Are there errors of two years?? (when counselors or anyone else calculates) aside from myself who is math deficient.I can see weeks even mos but years??
The whole case/experience from beginning before I knew him to now seems completely bizarre.

LOL no, i mean, there are calculations, but there's not a calculator or a website designed specifically to figure out prison time :p if you tell me the basic info i can try to help you figure it out. you need to know when he went to jail, how long they were sentenced to, if the crime was violent or non-violent, if they have any previous strikes, how many credits they were given by the judge (or dates/how many days they've been in county), how long they waited between being sentenced and going to reception, and when they transfer got state prison. i think that's what is needed.... look thru the other posts on this thread and just let me (or someone else) know that info and i'm sure one of us can help ya out until that calculator is invented :)

hi i really don't know much about probation violations, deals, etc... and how they calculate time, but IF it's the same as regular sentencing (and maybe someone else like Gryphon can correct me if i'm wrong) then i would figure it out like this:

3 years = 1095 days, so 1095 days - 5 months (150 days) = 945 days
(you don't say whether this is a 2nd strike or if it was violent but i'll assume it's not either one for this)
945 days x 50% = 473 days upon getting to reception
473 days - 2 months (60 days) in reception = about 413 days remaining

which would make his out date just around Jan 1st, 2011.

Again I really have no idea if violations and such are calculated differently but this would be how it is with a 3 year sentence with the time served that you said. Hope this helps :)

does a felony vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence qualify for 50% time served? How do they determine if you get 50/80/85%?

does a felony vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence qualify for 50% time served? How do they determine if you get 50/80/85%?

As for how they determine percentages:

50% if the crime in non-violent and he has no prior strikes
80% if the crime is non-violent but he has 1 prior strike
85% if the crime is violent (regardless of whether he has a prior strike or not)

Here is a document that explains if crimes are violent or not (violent felonies are in blue): http://www.alexandrialawlibrary.com/SVF-9%20-%20Revised-Final.doc

You'll need to know the exact charges and any enhancements that he had so you can look it up on there. From what I found he would at least have either PC 191.5 or PC 192(c)(1) but I think you need more specific info to really figure out what percentage he will do. Hope this helps a bit tho!

10-02-2009, 07:02 PM
Thanks so much this was very helpful. He was charged as a PC 192(C)(1) doesn't have any priors. No enhancements but it is listed as PC 1192.7(C) which means its a serious felony I guess. Does that mean its most likely he will be at 50%?

Yes as far as I understand it, if he was just charged with PC 192(C)(1) which is listed as a serious (not violent) crime, and he doesn't have any prior strikes, then he would get 50%. Not sure where he is in the process, but when he sees his counselor in reception he/she will tell him his official release date that they have in the system. Good luck!

Yes as far as I understand it, if he was just charged with PC 192(C)(1) which is listed as a serious (not violent) crime, and he doesn't have any prior strikes, then he would get 50%. Not sure where he is in the process, but when he sees his counselor in reception he/she will tell him his official release date that they have in the system. Good luck!


Thanks so much ichliebedich! You've been great help. He finally wrote me and it looks like he wont get to reception for a few weeks he's in orientation right now.

My husband was sentenced 16 mo. for vp,and I am under the impression that prisoners generally do half their X; then i figure this: he did about 2 mo. in county, IF reception is 3-4 mo. the double X is equivalent to 6--8 mo. + the 2 county mo. that would mean he'd B out by the time reception X is nearly over. That's how positive I want to B about it. BUT, i am new to the system and would greatly appreciate your knowledgable experiences & wisdom. Thanks A Million!

what's a vp? The only thing I could think of that it might stand for is violation of parole...but then I thought that violations were a year max...

I assume he violated probation (vp) and then got a 16 mo. sentence.
The CDRR conduct credits, as well as local conduct credits, depend on whether it was a crime that's defined as violent. If not violent, he gets around 33% conduct credits for local county jail time and 50% conduct credits once he get to reception at CDCR. If violent, he only gets 15% conduct credits for all the time no matter where served.
Time form sentencing until arrival at CDCR is probably going to be day for day (no conduct credits).
On a violation of probation subtract all local time previously served on this case, as well as the appropriate percentage of conduct credits. That includes the original sentence and any previous VOPs. He gets day for day credits from sentencing until arrival at reception, and then he gets the appropriate conduct credit percentage one he arrives at CDCR Reception.

He probably got 2 years at half time = 1 year, less 238 days of credit, which leaves 127 days or about months.

He probably thinks he might get an early release with all that is going on here in Cali. Either way - you're almost at the end. :thumbsup:

Credits are calculated before any adjustments for percentage of time to be served. In the case of this inmate the calculation would go as follows:
Sentence: 2yrs=24mos.
Credit: 238 days=7mos, 28days
Time Remaining: 16mos, 2days @ 50%=8mos, 1day
*Calculations based on a 30 day month
The remaining time is calculated as half time.....half time is calculated after all other credits are applied. An inmate may receive other credits once in State custody. In all actuality it's never exactly 50% unless it's straight County time being served. You must also take into account the amount of time spent in County after sentencing awaiting transfer to State custody. Half time begins the day you are received into State custody.

Hope this helps.

I'm new and don't know where to post this but I'm hoping someone here can help point me in the right direction. How does CDC calculate years and months? Is a year 365 days and a month 30 days? Do they convert it all into months, 12 months per year and determine how many months the sentence is and multiple by 30? :confused:

I get my head spinning around this part of prison and sentencing.
Once he goes to *reception* at some point he will see his counselor, who will give him is *early* release date, and his max time out.
Also pretty sure he will have parole even after he is released even if he maxs.
It goes something like this.
85% of 3 yrs
less time spent in county waiting to be sentenced= 1+1/2(?)

Im sorry I am not good at all this part, and I forget if they are in county waiting to go to reception (and after sentencing) if that time is just 1 for 1, instead of the time and a half.

It's actually 2.5 years that he would spend in prison. However he could be in that number to be release early if his offense is non violent. Either way if he stays out of trouble he'll do less then 3 years.

If I am not mistaken, if this is his fisst time in jail or prison and he is serving 85%, then it more than likely is violent offense. Most first times are 50%, but not always.

And to figure out his sentence,
take 3 years and multiply that by 85%, or
1095 days x's 85% this leaves 931 days, then you have to figure in his county credits, he can get 1 day for every day served, or 2 for every day served. Lets say he gets 1 for 1 credit, this would be roughly, 430 days minused out of the 931 days left to serve. Leaves his time at almost 500 days to serve in prison. Or if he is lucky and gets 2 for 1, this would be 860 days removed from 931 days, he would do about 70 days prison time.

Hope this is understandable.

He was sentenced to 3 years (1095 days); with 15% credits he would do 931 of the 1095 days, and have a release date of 2-12-2011.

Conduct credits are not determined by whether it is a "first timer".
Credits are approx. 33% for non violent local county conduct credits.
50% for prison credits for non-violent crime.
80% for non violent strike enhanced credits.
85% for crimes defined as violent.
65% for fire camp if the crime would otherwise carry 50%.

If I am not mistaken, if this is his fisst time in jail or prison and he is serving 85%, then it more than likely is violent offense. Most first times are 50%, but not always.

Is there a way someone can earn more time off of their sentence for federal time. Will working or continued education help along with good behavior? My loved one has 1 year 1 day

There are no other federal credits for so short of a sentence, besides the 54 days off per year of sentenced time. And these credits apply only for those who are doing more than a year, so thank your lucky stars he got a year and a day, thus his total time to serve should be 366 days - 54 = 312 days total (a little over 10 months).

Many prisoners pay many thousands of dollars to highfalutin lawyers who end up getting their defendants federal sentences of 12 months, for which the prisoner does the entire 12 months (no good time off since the sentence does not exceed one year). Then the prisoner gets to camp (or an FCI), and spends much time (and energy) in the law library trying to figure out how to file a writ asking the judge to give them just one more day (for the year and a day sentence), so they can get the 54 days taken off.

Anyway, the moral here is that those high-powered lawyers don't always know sentencing law that well, as any lawyer worth his or her salt would know that a 12-month sentence is a looser, when they just as easily could have gotten the judge to sentence the defendant to a year and a day, thus making the defendant eligible for the 54 days.

Had he been sentenced to a few years, he might have qualified for a year off for successfully completing a drug treatment program. But he's doing such short time, that the 54 days is the only time off he will get. He will qualify for a halfway house when he has 6 months left to go, but sometimes the BOP only grants up to 10% of the sentence as halfway house time. So he really should concentrate on getting to the halfway house as soon as he can, as he can then qualify almost immediately to go on home detention.

But this is a California state forum, so you should post your questions on the Federal forums, where many of your questions can (or probably have already) been answered.

okayy my bf was sentenced to 4yrs with 50%
at the time of sentencing he had 565 days-
377 served, 188 good behavior time
he went to state prison on dec. 26th 2008

4 years = 365 x 4 = 1460 days
1460 - 377= 1083 days
1083 - 188 = 895 days
895 - 50% = 447.5 days plus add 1 day because 2010 is a leap year.

So he has 448.5 days. I think they round up to 449 days

from there sweety you count on the calander to get the date give or take a day or so.

My loved one was sentenced September 25,2002 and was given a sentence of 12 years. He is required to do 85%. His out date is September 12, 2012. He has acquirred his High School Diploma. He has not been in any trouble and doesn't have any write ups. He has already served 122 days in County Jail.

I am aware they are having an early prison release. Will you please help me calculate the remaining time he has to serve?

Thanks,

A family member
