Well, it seems something is happening...
My guy has two consecutive life sentences and has been in for 23+ years but he's now being moved to minimum and honor grade and gets weekends at home and they are "preparing" him for release. There's an update on "Promotion of Felons" coming or in the making - that is in his state of North Carolina.
I'm really no expert and I assume it all depends on the state and the inmate and his record plus probably a lot of other things - others on here will be able to tell you much more qualified insights - but with regards to what's happening with my guy and his prison it's happening. And I'm more than elated, I'll be seeing him on weekends at home sometime soon

I'm assuming you mean good conduct credits being recalculated under Prop 57 (specific to CA, state sentenced inmates)? Violent offenders went from 85% to 80% as of May 1st. The credits are not retroactive and will be applied from May 1st forward. You can read more about that here.

Counselors are slowly notifying inmates of their new dates.

Oh informed he was and my guy has been going crazy and making lists of things to do/have/want when he gets home. Sometimes it's nice to be so far away so I hardly have any to-do's

Yes Miamac, that is what I mean. Just curious if it applies to VO's who have got in trouble while in there as well? TIA

Good conduct credits (80%), milestones and other credit earning potential do apply to VOs. Getting a write-up risks their good conduct credit and their shot at parole when they meet with the board, same as before.

If he's already got a release date of December, it's unlikely to change. Credit earnings for things like education and milestones do not begin to accumulate until August.
