Default Louisiana SB139 (now ACT No. 280): Who is eligible? Retroactive?


I was curious if anyone knows about the new SB139 law in Louisiana that just passed and goes into affect 11/01/2017?

If so, who does this apply too? or who is eligible?

How does it work?

Does the time already spent in jail apply to the time of the release date recalculated given when the new law goes into affect? I believe its called retroactively?

My husband was sentenced for 5 years on a 3rd DUI count on 05/22/2017 he has no other charges against him. His release date on good behavior is 05/22/2019.

Thank you for your help.
