Default Does Recidivism Sentencing Effect More than % served?

If a person is sentenced enhanced by recidivist label does it have any impact or change where or how they have to serve their time? I know that it means there will be no parole or early release. But, does it have anything to do with their security level? Itís only a low level felony, Theft by taking $1,700 which is just over the felony amount of $1,500. Will that inmate still be eligible for a low level compound/camp? Or, does that increase their security and force them to serve their time in a close or high security ? Thanks

Welcome to Prison Talk. Here's a link to an article by Georgia Council on Criminal Justice Reform's "Third Sentencing Subcommittee Meeting" about the recidivism statute that may answer some of your questions.

They may be able to be at a lesser facility. How long is the sentence? I don't know where you are but Family Day is on July 12th & that is a perfect chance to ask questions of DOC officials. Here is a link to the event. https://joinnia.com/event/family-day/ You might also reach out to the advocacy group at this site. The National Incarceration Association is based in GA & they can help answer your questions.https://joinnia.com/contact-us
