Unhappy Men's Central Jail release date changed to later date? Updated, please help

Hi guys sorry to post on here but I'm new to this and my brothers attorney is absolutely no help. He was sentenced to two years for a first time felony that was non violent. He was told his PRD would be November of this year. He's in the trustee program and he also has time served and 157 days of credit that was added yesterday. When would he get out? Poor guy is so confused as much as my family is. He keeps saying he should be kicked out by now but clearly that's not happening. I have no clue what he is talking about when he gives me his calculations. I feel like if someone could give me a better understanding of this my brother would t be so frustrated when he's trying to explain it to us in our short calls Any help would be much appreciated! Thank you in advance.

Im no good at the calculations.
but depending on how much time he is supposed to serve, and at what rate....
take the two years, minus whatever his percentage is...
say he has to do 85%
Or 50%
deduct that
Then subtract the time served days..
Should give you a ball park.

Can he contact his counselor? Request to meet him and discuss?


oops, just realized its county.
You might call and ask? Do you visit?

I live in Washington and he doesn't want us to see him in there. Can he request a counselor? I just checked on that website and it says release date 11/27/2017. He has credits of 157 days so it seems like he will be out June 23rd if I counted right? I think he is AB 109. Hopefully being a trustee helps so he can get out sooner. He's convinced he should be doing 30% with what the other inmates tell him. It's all so stressful

The current release date is found by putting his information in here:

http://app4.lasd.org/iic/ajis_search.cfm

As for additional credits, I think trustees get some additional time off, but generally speaking if someone is in on an AB 109 crime they will do 50%.

Early kicks usually are prioritized like this (this is not an official declaration, but 5+ years of seeing how the County Jail system works and who gets kicks and who doesn't leads me to think this is a pretty reliable chart as far as LOS ANGELES COUNTY is concerned....your mileage may vary.)

1.) People serving time for fines/infractions. Lowest level criminals. Often are processed and immediately kicked...no room for them. Worst case they're serving 10%.
2.) People serving 30 days or less. Judges won't tell you this but they're basically getting processed and kicked. There's no way for them to benefit from any longer-term jail programs and they're taking up bed space that could be used for higher-level criminals.
3.) People serving on misdemeanor charges. These folks are generally serving 10-30% of their sentences, closer to 10 usually.
4.) People serving parole violations...depending on the length of the violation. 10 day flashes will serve 10 days, but 30 day violations seem to serve 10-15%. A 180 or 365 day violation tends to serve most if not all of the time though since their violations are usually more significant.
5.) People serving on felony charges with county probation instead of state prison where AB 109 is not a factor. So let's say you pick up a felony charge and the probation department steps in and says "hey, that guy's probation eligible." Prosecutor agrees and offers you a deal accordingly, say, 120-180 days. These folks are serving 30-50% from what I have been able to tell.
5.) People serving AB 109 sentences. These folks are lowest on the totem pole for kicks. In the past they would have gone to State Prison, so keeping them housed is considered in the best interest for public safety. They will generally serve 50% of their time. There may be some trustee credit in there that helps, but 50% is a good base line for them.

If I had to guess, he falls into the 5th category and with trustee credit may get an early kick some time this summer, but check the sheriffs website inmate locator and it will tell you what the current date is. (This is subject to updating of course.)

If he is AB 109 he will be doing 50%, there is no early kick for ab109 inmates. If he is a trustee than he might do 40%. My fiancé is ab109, already 5 months in and has a release date in Jan 2018, I fought hard to try and get him out early but the only option we had was fire camp so I got him qualified for that and that's what he's doing now. Fire camp will be the only way to get out early. If his release date says 11/27/2017 , I would think that's with the time he already served and got credit for. The judge should have explained that at court during sentencing.

If he's staying in county than he will not have a counselor, that's for CDCR. At county, you just do your time and only have the guards to ask questions and they won't help much. My fiancé was at MCJ as a trustee and is now at pitchess for fire camp

If he was sentenced to two years in December 2016 and his release date is showing November of this year that's the 50% including his 157 days of credits?

If his release date is showing November of this year then that's really all you can go off of as far as a set date. That math doesn't quite add up on a 2 year sentence in December with 157 days credit (assuming 79 actual plus 78 conduct, but I don't have the sheet in front of me obviously.) That would make me think 730-157=573/2=286.5 to serve....I'd think his out date would be more around the beginning of September based on that information (also depends when in December he was sentenced?) But I don't have all the case factors, disciplinary record, etc. in front of me to guess beyond that.

Apparently he's not an AB 109. He was sentenced to two years on decmeber 1st 2016. His release date is showing November 27th 2017. The jail police says its showing that he's owing 426 days still and just a couple days ago his 157 credits appeared. I'm so confused and we don't know who we can talk to to get that straightened out.

I'm very confused about how this sentencing process went. It sounds like something isn't quite adding up right.

Yeah I'm confused too. I tried calling the sheriffs office and no one has answers. I have to find minute orders from the court somehow and give them to the watch commander. Problem is that I don't live in California. Such a messed up system!

Unhappy Projected release date moved to a later date

I'm so confused. My brothers release date was supposed to be the day after Thanksgiving this year. All of a sudden it says he had another sentencing on 9/22 which he has no idea about and his projected release date says 1/14/2018. It says the days served is 364 days. What's going on? Does this mean he has another year to serve or is he getting out the day after thanksgiving or is he getting out January 14th??? I don't have the heart to tell him or the rest of my family because we waited all this year for thanksgiving.

Your brother should be able to find out what is happening from the prison staff. If he doesn't agree, he can file an inmate grievance.

They told him last night that he may even stay up until May 2018. No explanation. No one knows what's going on. This seems really suspicious. His case number isn't even showing online but it said he was sentenced on September 22nd 2017. He wasn't. He was sentenced Jan 2017. I don't know who to go for this. No one within jail is helping my brother either. His public defender doesn't know anything either apparently.

Update on the release date. My family, my brother, and I have been counting down the days to November 24th 2017 and I checked the projected release date for something eearlier but guess what!? The release date moved to January of 2018! Why in the world would that happen? Previously the date changed two two days earlier. Now it's 2 months later!? He hasn't done anything to make anyone mad and it says he had a sentencing on 9/22 which he has no idea happened. What's happening? Is he ever getting out????
