Default Sex offenders and "good time"

Well, it looks like my boyfriend will be serving a year for one charge and 30 days for another, run concurrently.

I have heard so many different things about "good time." One of his lawyers told us it's one day off for every day served, another said he'd serve 75%, and the Louisiana code says sex offenders don't qualify at all!

I am so confused! Does anyone have personal experience they'd like to share?

(for reference, this is a non-violent, non-porn crime)

My husband has to save half before he's eligible for parole. He's got 2 /5- year sentences to be served concurrently. The laws of your state might be different than Texas though. If Louisiana law stats they're not eligible for behavior time, I wouldn't get my hopes up. I'm certainly not getting mine up for my husband.

Everything is going to depend on what statutes he was convicted under. When he gets his master prison record, it will tell everything you want to know.
