Default Self Surrender

My son was recently sentenced to 5 years starting May 16, 2006 in the FCI camp in Sheridan Oregon. My son was told when he self surrendered he would get six points. The options were taking him to Sacramento or drive him to Oregon so my wife and I decided to drive him to Oregon. Can points be used to get out early? If not what are points used for?

Hopefully someone will come along with an answer for you. I can't figure out why he would be getting 6 points...

There are only two things I can think of that use points. One is the security classification, which apparently is low for him if he's going to a camp. The other are visiting points - they get so many points per month to be used for visiting time. The number 6, though, is very low for that - unless they only give him partial points since he's only there part of the month of May. I'm just guessing here though!! Zelda
