I have never been in any kind of trouble before, I'm a 58 year old grandma, who hasn't even gotten a speeding ticket in 15 years. I need to prepare my husband, bills and family.

Thanks
The most you can possibly do is 6 months. But the percentage is really more reliant on whether it is a county jail or state prison sentence. Prison sentences do not seem to get early release very often. If it's a county sentence, probably you will be released a decent amount before 6 months. But there really is no promises other than 2:1 credit and good time credits.

Thank you for your reply. I should have said going to LA county, not state prison.

Hello,
I was just released from lynwood sept 2nd. if you receive a county year you could do half or you could do 37 days. it depends on the percentages when you go in. Another option would be to sign up for the working dorm that will take time off of your sentence. if you are sentenced to a county year county time then its more like 37 days. if its and ab 109 then you will do half for sure. please have t=your lawyer explain this to you cause i got fucked on mine and did more time than i thought i would do. have him or her clarify.

Thank you! Hope it's only 37 days or less. My lawyer has NEVER shown up once he'll only had his associate come and he's 80ish with Alzheimer's or something. I so freaking out here

Well I’m out. Turned myself in on a Friday 9-29-2017 and got out Saturday 9-30-2017 around 3pm. I had 22days. It was a guy with me who did the same on 180 days and got out the same time as me.

My fiance was sentenced to 270 days for a restraining order violation in Twin Towers, with 21 days credit. Does anyone know the current percentages that inmates are currently doing?

Default Husband Sentenced to 120 in County Jail for non-violent misdemeanor

Hi,
My husband was sentenced on Wednesday at San Fernando Court to 120 days and 20 days of community labor. He has to surrender on January 4, 2018. I know at most he has to serve 60 days (50%) but what are the odds he will be out sooner than that? He just got a new job and we think he can get away with taking a leave of absence for a few weeks to a month but we are scared it will be long and he could lose his job. Any insight would be great! Thanks!!

This is good news! Iím hoping this will mean good things when my husband turns himself in to them on Jan. 4. His is 120 days and I hope itís still a throwout like some have said.

I surrender early August. How much time should I expect to serve? Also, what can I do to prevent getting transferred to Pitchess? Thank you all in advance.


So are you out yet? How much time did you end up doing??

Probably just a few days if it's a non violent misdemeanor from what I've seen on this board and in my experience. Be prepared for anything though.

Default query...

Hi there possible fellow inmates :,,( So I'm going in on what I assume will be a county year (taking the mandatory max to avoid probation). I'm a female going in to Lynwood. Was there once before years ago on a 90 day and was released in 72 hours. My lawyer keeps telling me the dif between 120 days (the mandatory min) and a year are paltry, but I have a feeling he might be misleading me.... am I correct in my assumption that a county year would shake out to 30% for me? Roughly 3.65 months? Any chance it would be less? I know there's a difference in the way they treat anything under 120 vs over... Also, what is this AB 109 business? That law deals specifically with felony offenders, correct? I'm going in on a non violent MD w/ a prior.... Any info that's current would be immensely helpful and appreciated. I know what I'm in for (unfortunately) but would like to get the most accurate picture of the amount of time at which I'm looking... Also, if I'm on a psych med should I just bring it with me and tell the officer checking my property that it needs to get to the nurse for future dispensation? Do I need to bring medical records? Thanks in advance for info... Cheers! -A

Try private messaging LMarl72936. For 120 and under that is still an auto kick out. Just know that the max you will do is 6 months but I highly doubt it will be that. They have bigger fish to fry in there!

Default Please Help- DUI Question

I am going to plead guilty to my second DUI on 12/18/17. I have no violence on my record in my past, non-violent. The DA set my plea deal at 60 days in County. My lawyer told me to plan on 30 days and hope for the best. Realistically though what do you think I will serve?

I have a son, so I'm trying to figure out how to handle with his mom and also trying to figure out how to handle with my boss to save my job.

Thanks you so much in advance.

30 is the max due to the law that says you serve 50% of your sentence however I was told anything 120 days and below are auto kick outs and you may be out by 4am the day after you check in.

Default Release

Hello my husband turned himself in 09/29/2017. He was sentenced to one year in County for his 1st case. His second case he got 5 years to run concurrent with his 1st sentence. Judge stated that he would serve 50% or less. He is in Supermax. How can I find out his release date?

This forum helped me out with a lot of questions that I had about jail culture and release times. I surrendered yesterday in Long Beach court for a DUI with injury and was sentenced to 150 days. Once I got there I asked the guard the official percentage and it’s 10%. I went in yesterday at 11am and was released at 8am this morning. Hope this provides someone comfort as y’all responses have did for me.

I learned my lesson. This place is by far not where you want to be nor is it a place to get comfortable. Keep your head down, mind your business, do your time, and move forward with your life.

It isn’t that bad! I was just there trust me

However, I have to add that the place is SUPER CROWED. It was 25 in a tank and 12-15 of the arrestests were on the floor.

Have a wonderful New Years!!!!!

Good morning. My husband took a deal of 1yr of county 5years probation for a felony for his first case. He turned himself in on 10/29/2017. For his second case he took a deal of 5yrs for another felony. To run concurrent with first sentence and at 50%. Judge said could be sooner with over crowding. He had 164 days credit on 12/1/2017. Will he serve the full 2 1/2 yrs? Help...

If he qualified for the 50% then he would have been out already at 135 days. I would think sooner possibly. Sign up for Vine Link through the Sheriffs and they will send you something a few days before his planned release.

Ah maybe they want 90 days in addition to the 186 but I keep hearing the release has been after 10% so 9 days or so. Could be 13 days if based on original sentencing. Felonies are different so Iím not sure...hereís to hoping itís sooner than later!
