Hello, unfortunately this rumor about shortening State Jail sentences seems to be just that --- a rumor that is going around a lot of the jails right now. There have been several people ask about this but state jail is done day for day. If you happen to find something on it please share it with us but so far no one has been able to verify that there is any truth to it. I hope this information helps you and that your son is home soon. God Bless! Katy

I guarantee that there was more to it than that. There is no legal remedy available to an offender or to the State of Texas to release an offender before their sentence is done in a State Jail - for overcrowding or otherwise. There is only one way and that is for the judge that sentenced them in the first place to decide to change their sentence and that has to be within 180 days of sentencing. This can happen if you go back to that judge and convince him to make that change before the 180 days is up. Good luck. No one in jail will admit to ratting out someone else to get their own sentence reduced.

Could this be for offenders in TDCJ or does the rumor apply to only State Jail?

Cheryl, the rumors go around quite frequently, but that's all they are..rumors. I know it's hard to hear, because it makes you want to go find SOMETHING to get them out sooner, but it unfortunatly doesn't work that way.

Brandonsgirl, I posted an article yesterday that may confirm the TDCJ portion of it. Take a look at it and tell me what you think.

This is a state jail rumor. I believe that even the b1067 asked about here is just mistaken variant of the 1244a or 1244b "form" misinformation which is all over Harris county. There is no form. The 12.44(a) and 12.44(b) refers to a Penal Code article that applies specifically to those charged with State Jail felonies that can get them either (a) punished as a midemeanor offense which means county time or (b) prosecuted as a misdemeanor offense. All subject to the discretion of the DA and/or judge and is based upon their consideration (as I understand it) of the charges and the person being charged and their background.

Or, this could be something completely new.

I'm afraid that the Sunset Commission recommendations won't affect those convicted on state jail felonies.

Default 12.44a

I'm confussed??? If there is no "form" for the 12.44a, how does one go about trying to get the felony reduced using that penal code?

royone, if you read the above post by Robin'sMan it says there is no such form. Rumors are thick at the State Jails and TDC Units about early release but sadly they are just rumors. You might ask a lawyer in your area if there is anything new that might help you. Good Luck!

actually i talked to judge hights and he told me that it does not have to be done at sentencing it just has to be done within the 180 days hownd your lawyer and call the judge i wrote the governor and he to is helping me because there are a few options that few can take but it takes a lot of phone calls patience and hard work to find the loop holes but there are loop holes just start with a letter to the governor write him a le tter and he will send it to the right people then also go to dept of criminal justice look up the pardons it will give you a number to call for early release shock probabtion to give you an idea of who qaulifies (sorry if i spelt this wrong) like i said its a lot of work its possible but it also may not happen for you but it sure the hell is worth a try cause i am sure we all want our men home weather it be husband or son etc just keep digging but i will be posting a number for you to call in the next hour i will look it up again
