Default Trying to understand "Credit for Time Served"

hey,
my boyfriend was just sentenced to 11.5-23 months but the judge gave him credit for time served which would be 2.5 months, however people are telling me that he can get credit for time served all the way back to when he posted bail about 7 months ago.

Is that possible? or no?

The time he was out on bond is not counted...he wasn't incarcerated. Sorry sweetie.

No, it doesn't work that way. My boyfriend was kind of hoping the same thing because he was on a tether. Not quite the same as being locked up!

He will only receive credit for the time he was actually incarcerated. The amount of credit will be noted on his sentencing documents.

Yeah the ladies are right anytime he was out on the streets won't count, but for the most part all of the time they actually were in jail will count. I've never heard of them getting time for being out on bond though...I wish

Seems as if you should be able to google something. But it's no way you could ever think someone could get time credited if they were out on bond. Only however many days he actually spent locked up.

Even time on monitored house arrest, gps, whatever, prior to sentencing doesn't count towards a sentence. If the judge wanted him credited with that time, the only way to guarantee that he actually got it would be to sentence him to a term that was reduced by the number of months he was out on bond.

If there is nothing in his sentencing order, the only credit for time served he will receive is the time he was actually locked up for the same case before he was sentenced.

Thank you for asking this question my husband tried to get me to look into this bc someone there told him he could get credit for when he was out on bail I told him it sounded stupid and the only time the give you credit for is when you are actually in, where do they get this stuff from

It's wishful thinking on their part, especially if they were bonded out on a tether and limited in what they could do. They would like that to count, but sadly, it does not.

Thank you
If you are looking for his sentencing documents (sentence status summary) your boyfriend should have them. I recently got a copy from my husband. He received the sentence status summary right after he was sentenced.
