He could be sent to a HWH anywhere up to one year before his release date, but the way things are now, 6 months is more realistic. He will still be serving the end of his bop sentence while he is in the HWH. He can be sent home to live under home confinement from the HWH, but he will be released from bop custody (HWH or H/C) on his release date, which is when his probation will begin..

Flores: He can earn 200 days good time or a little more than 6 1/2 months off of his sentence. He can also qualify for HWH at the end of his sentence. The amount of HWH is up to the bop, but somewhere around 5 months is the most likely amount of time. Same as above regarding home confinement, release and probation.

As of now, the only way to earn additional time off is to complete the residential drug program, which can earn up to one extra year off.

For <3krty

*He had a minimum mandatory 120 month sentence which must run consecutive to 57 months was in at 10/5/11 approx 6 months does the time off get combined or when one sentence ends and the other begins how is it applied?

Where is the credit get applied?

Thank you

He must serve 85% of his sentence. If you look him up on the BOP site, it will show his release date which will include the 85% reduction (47 days per year).

On mines it shows the exact time given with none of the good time added. So now I'm so confused

How to get unconfused: Ask your loved one what the official calculation is.

He or she gets told good time credit and out date early on in the sentence. There is no need for confusion, the answer is a phone call, letter or corrlinks away.

The BOP website may or not be accurate, the BOP computations (which can be inaccurate also but can be adjusted) govern the sentence.

He can earn 129 days of good time at 47 days for each yeat (2 3/4 years) of his sentence. He can get up to 6 months half way house before his release date, but 10% of his sentence, or about 3 months, is more likely. The HWH time is totally up to his unit team.

Yes, but some folks like to figure it out before it is on the site.

Default Gct!!

Hi Everyone,

I got sentenced to the Miami FCI for 12 months. I get conflicting answers on this topic.

Ok, reading a bit more on this thread I was able to see that I don't get gtc. Bummer!

I see also that the hwh doesn't really have a science to it either. DANG!!! Really depressing.



Thanks Everyone

Yes, she will earn 94 days off her sentence for good time and she can spend the end of her remaining time, usually 2 to 3 months, in a half way house near your home.

fbopnpmpre: yes thats what the Att, said they was talking like a year or so in Connectt then back to indy for about 6 mo half way then home the rest house aresst something like that. the bad part is i go to bed every night not knowing where she is going or when if it is connectt then thats about 12 hrs or more from me i think it more like 13 1/2 but after 12 whats about 1 1/2 lol thats going to be hard to do to go see her we have two kids at home one in school with that work and everyday things thats a long haul. the judge ordered them to find something close to home but thats the last we heard from the judge was in court that day. i hope probate does what he says but there isnt very many camps close to Indianapolis, IN so who knows i am just ready to get this over with it has been going on for over a year now with court and all that she got sentanced the 18th of dec and we still have no clue where she is going yes i talk to much just alot on my mind................ and the stress level at home is getting harder and harder each day

I hope she will be going to a prison that is close to your family. I was never closer than 1200 miles from home, and over 2000 miles away for most of my 5 year sentence. It definitely reduced the visits I received, but we made up for it through phone calls and letters. All you can do is the best you can do.

Once she arrives at the half way house, she may be able to live at home on home confinement for the last part of her HWH time. She will still be in bop custody until her release date, but under "community control" at either the HWH or at home. All of that is up to her bop unit team and the rules of the HWH, so it's best not to count on anything until it actually happens.
The bop can grant every inmate one year of HWH, (second chance act) but they usually only give 10% of the sentence up to 6 months.

It helps if you guys keep planning the future when she is home again. Be sure to include the children, and her in the planning. It will give everyone something to look forward to, and also remind you all that this will soon end, and you will be together as a family again.

I'm not sure if anyone has asked this so I apologize if this has been answered does the projected release date in the fbop website reflect time that will be taken off for good behavior?

Yes, the website will show the calculated "good time" in the release date.

Default Is Good Conduct already calculated into release date?

I just got my Husbands release date and I am wondering if GC is already calculated or if I subtract from that...With his 72 month sentence the GC would be substancial.

Thanks!

Yes, the date shown on the bop inmate locator should include the 282 days of good time he will earn, but not any additional time off he may qualify for by being eligible for the residential drug program. Also, any time he gets to do in either a half way house, or on home confinement, will occur before his posted release date.
