Hmm. I don't know. Mine got credit for time served in county, but it was one for one. Maybe there are certain conditions for that to apply?

No, in California there are three different types of credit.
1.) Pre-sentence credit, which is 2-for-1 as long as conduct credit is earned. So if you get arrested and are sentenced 100 days later, as long as you have behaved yourself you'll get 200 days credit (100 actual+100 conduct.) My understanding that this is true for all non-strike felonies. However, if you get a strike, you only get 15% (100 actual+15 conduct.)
2.) Post-sentence credit, which is 50% (2-for-1) if you're non-violent non-serious. You get 20% if you were sentenced to a non-violent non-serious with a prior strike. You get 15% if you were sentenced to a strike.
3.) Actual CDCR credit. This is applied to all days once you are received by CDCR.

If you get a 3rd strike you don't get anything but actual time served. So if you get 25 years to life for a third strike, and serve 100 days, you only get the 100 days credit. No conduct.

To simplify it though, it won't matter what credit was granted until sentencing at which time the judge will state what's been earned.
