I think July 2009 is right. I'm not sure what the 1099 is.. but if he has to do 85% of his time thats 8 and a half years...

ACT 1099 IS EVERY 17 DAYS HE SPEND IN JAIL HE GET CREDIT OF 3 DAYS. WHEN I DID THE MATH I GOT 8 YEARS. OK 10 YEARS IS 3650 DAYS. I DIVIDED 3650 BY 17 WHICH GAVE 215 TIME THAT BY 3 GAVE 645. SO I SUBTRACTED 645 FROM 3650 WHICH GAVE 3005 AND THEN I DIVIDED IT BY 365 WHICH GAVE ME 8 YEARS. AM I DOING IT WRONG?! ..... ON HIS RECORD IT DIDNT SAY ANYTHING ABOUT 85% IT SAID HE IS UNDER ACT 1099. HE TOLD ME HE HAD TO DO 85%.

3/17 Rate – VIOLENT CRIMES
Inmates convicted a first time for a crime of violence as defined in La. R.S.
14:2(13), which is committed on or after January 1, 1997, and who are otherwise
eligible to earn good time, shall earn diminution of sentence at a rate of three
days for every seventeen days in actual custody, including time spent in custody
with good behavior for which the inmate is eligible for jail credit; serves 85%.
(La. R.S. 15:571.3B) (
Act 1099 of the 1995 Regular Session).

Somehow they are figuring 17/3 is 85% of the sentencing

You can try to contact his Pre-Class officer which is the person who calculates his rap sheet. You can call the facility he is in and request to know who his pre-class officer is and how to contact him/her. Some facilities work with you some dont, so dont be surprised if they state they cannot give you that information. If you cannot find out, call DOC and ask what you can do to discuss his time calculations. They also may want to know your relationship to the inmate. Good luck

Smile Time Calculation

I have a family member who is incarcerated. If I were to detail the sentence to you, do you think you could figure out the time for me? Please let me know. Thanks!

as i've stated before, my son is a sex offender, he was 17, she was 14, he was sentenced to 5 yrs, but they paroled him in 6 months, but when he got out, was too embarassed to register, so they violated him. he's 23 now in a louisiana prison, at 1st they told him apply for hearing in january, now they say he's got to be down 2 yrs before he can apply for hearing, i wrote them(parole board) told them january 07 was 2 yrs, but they told him to apply in december this year. my son says on his rap sheet, his time to get out is feb.02,"09

It could be possible they will make him do 85% of his time that he has left since he is considered a violent offender.

My boyfriend was given 8 years back in 1998 for a non-violent offense. He got out on goodtime in Jan. 06 and was arrested on an unrelated charge in Oct. 06. He was given 1 year for the violation. My question is: since his original release date was Jan. 17 '07, can they still hold him for that long? From all the research I've done, any time given for a parole violation is only up to the original release date. Help?

Yes.. he will have to finish out his orignal sentence because he violated parole and then he has to complete his 1 year for the violation charge. Do you know if he is sentenced 1 year to run concurrent or consecutive with his original sentence? If it is to run concurrent then the time he is currently serving will count towards it. If it is ran consecutive then he will have to complete the 1 year after he finishes his original sentence.

Please help calculate my sons time.
7 yrs sentence 1st offender
non-violent drug crime
(served 2.5 yrs then released on parole)
on parole for 2.5 yrs - violated parole with 2nd offence non-violant charge
2nd offence sentence was 1 yr to run together with 1st offence
does the time on parole count towards his orig 7 yr sentance????
no detainers
don't know if there are extra chgs for parole violations

I don't think it does, check inmate locator for your state and they should have his projected release date on there.

I'm not sure if time on parole counts or not.. my gut's telling me no it doesn't....

Default Need a little help

Hi & thanks in advance for your help. My boyfriend was sentenced 11/06. DWI 4 he got 5 yrs to run concurrent with another 5 yr for simple robbery.

From reading other post, etc. he will do 85% of his 5 yrs. So am i correct to assume there is NO goodtime, etc. to reduce the 85%?

Thanks !!!

He will only have to do 85% if they classify him as a violent offender. If he is classied as a violent offender only doing 85% is considered the "good time"

Default Time in Louisiana

Hi-

My dad is in the Tangi parish jail. He was sentenced to 4 1/2 years with credit for time served on September 17, 2007. He has been there since 10/02/05 1st offense non-violent with no extra charges and no detainers...we figure somewhere around Nov 1st, but Doc says they dont even have his paperwork yet. I am so unfamiliar with the system that I do not know what to think, I live in GA and am the one that will go get him when he is released and just need to know a little about when to gauge a trip...thank you for your reply!
