Default Help! Any pending legislation re:good time?

Are there any bills waiting to be signed to give more good time to state prisoners? I have been reading all this information about good time for federal prisoners but my boyfriend doesnt have a federal case. Also does anyone know how many good time days in a year can be earned at MCI-Concord? My boyfriend is a kitchen worker and I know they get 2 1/2 days but they dont have any programs over there so how do they accumulate good time days?

I haven't seen anything in the works for good time. Once your boyfriend gets moved to a permanent facility he will be able to apply to programs.

They used to give good time for program and meeting participation along with work. Ask your man to see his Caseworker. He can fill him in on who and how good time is earned. FAMM is working on a reform of mandatory minimum sentencing law for drug offenders. Contact Barbara Dougan at 617-543-0878. Her email is: bdougan@famm.org The website is: www.famm.org Good luck.
