Default RECEPTION Credits

Can someone confirm credits for time spent in reception? Is it the same as the inmate's jail credit (since no programming is available)? Thanks.

Welcome to the world of trying to understand credit earning. There is pre-sentence time in jail. There is time in jail after sentence. Then the inmate is picked up from county jail by CDCR. Then there is state prison reception time. Then there is state prison mainline time.

Credits in state prison depend on inmate classification - 20%, 33%, 50%, etc. depending on his sentence. Credit is same in reception as in mainline, not necessarily the same as in jail. You are right, they can't program and earn other credits while in reception.

Jail credit pre or post-sentence might be different. I know, it's confusing. I've been wrapped around this axle for years and still struggle to figure it out. The inmate locator on the CDCR website will eventually show his earliest release date. That is your best place to find out when once he's processed.
