Default GED Time Cuts

Can someone explain how time cuts works for passing GED? Is there a minimum sentence that has to be served? I hear that it is 6 months. However, is it 6 months of the original sentence or 6 month of the 2 years do 1?

Help...

HeyShan,
If your brother can get into the Ged program it would be 6 mos off of the one year.. If he was sentenced to 2 yrs do 1yr... then he would only have to serve 6 months.. My prayers will be with you and your brother.

Thank you. He got into the program and just recieved his results on Monday. On November 22 he will be in there 6 months. Is there a waiting period? I hear it's 45 days.

I feel so helpless. I've tried everything to get him out... he is in for "stalking by cell phone"... ha... Has had NO prior arrests or anything. Has 4 kids and custody of 1 of them. The legal system isnt what I thought it was.
