09-16-2004, 06:43 PM
Is there ANY good time or gain time credits for someone who is serving a sentence of less than 1 year? All I heard is that when I get there I can apply with my counselor for a halfway house and the last 3 weeks of my sentence which is 10% I may be eligible to go.... But if anyone has any info please post it!

i'm really not sure exactly what u are asking. i thought that only felons sentenced to over 1 yr were sent to prison in fl.and what is this 10%....inmates of the fldoc usually have to serve 85% of their sentence if they are sentenced after 10/1/1995. you need to go to the fl doc website and check out the FAQ's at the top of the page. hope this helps you...rosi

In the federal system there is no good time credit on a sentence of 12 months or less. You must have a sentence of at least 12 months and 1 day to receive good time credit.

For halfway house you do not have to apply. Your case manager will handle all of that for you.

hey i got a question for you? How do they figure out the good time credit stuff in the fed's? My husband is going to be going to the fed's and they haven't told him how much time he's looking at but it's at least a couple of years. I was wondering is the 7months that he's been in county. Plus the month he'll be in DOC which I won't be able to see him. i was wondering if that will come off the sentence with the fed's as well.

Is he being held in county on a federal charge? If so, that time should count.

Good time credit with the feds is 47-54 good time days per year.

If you are sentenced to a year and one day then you are eligable to receive 54-57 days off of your sentence. Fed time.

cjjack is correct on the days, I goofed.

Your days already spent away should count. Once you get to the prison within about 10 days they will give you a break down of your time and an "out" date.
