Good Behavior

Interview with Mish, Sally, Pace, Baby, Jamie, Gerard, Jessica, Manuel, Jay, LKai, George, Terry, Pebbles, Miles and Josie

JM: Did you get off early based on good behavior?
Mish: I served 30 days in jail and 123 days on a work program.
Sally: YES I SERVED LESS TIME
Pace: The usual mandated program
Baby: Will see, If I get good behavior I should only do 38 days for the 90. I have 13 days already served so that makes it 77 . Then it is 2 days or every 6 you serve so I should get another 2 days off 77 making 75 if you divided 75 by 6, that is 13 so 62 I might be home before Christmas with my 4 children and my husband will be back from deployment
Jamie: yes
Gerard: In Orange County, we do 2/3 of our time. It's not hard to follow the rules at Musick. People nickname it "The Farm" because it's pretty relaxed there. Some deputies were jerks but some were especially nice.
Jessica: In orange county you serve 2/3 of your time. You get credit for good time/work time. I was sentenced to 6 months and did 4
Manuel: very little time is being taking off at oc county jail so dont plan on it.
Jay: Yes all of orange county jail has a 2/3rd time of your sentence if you do not screw up.
LKai: My stint wasn't long enough for that.
George: I received half time, which was the legal requirement at the time. I got no additional amount.
Terry: MY TIME OFF CAME BECAUSE SOME OF IT WAS MANDATORY TIME OFF FROM THE STATE, AND THE REST WAS WORKED FOR, INMATE LABOR.
Pebbles: I got 25 percent off my sentence for good behavior.
Miles: Yes, 15 days early I got for good behavior. But you had to get crazy to really hurt your chances of losing good time.

JM: What is the most time off you can receive for good behavior?
Sally: I'M SURE ITS 1/3 MY CASE WAS A LITTLE DIFFERENT BUT EVERYONE ELSE GOT 1/3 OFF.
Pace: Do not recall
Baby: like I said above 2 days for every 6, Or I am suppose to do 2/3 of my 90 days I wont know till I get back out and smell the grass and see the sun. And hug my husband, andkids
Jamie: depends on how much time you get
Jessica: 1/3
Manuel: dont really know it depends on the sheriff.
Jay: 1/3
LKai: -
Josie: the current time is 50%. 2 days off for every 1 actual good day.
George: If I had arrived to prison soon enough, I could have taken classes to have up to six weeks removed from my sentence. Other than that, each day counted as two.
Terry: UP TO NINE DAYS OFF PER MONTH
Pebbles: The most time I've ever gotten is 50% off but do to overcrowding it might be 75% soon!!!
Miles: 15% as far as I'm aware of, I heard stories of people getting 50% cause of overcrowding.

JM: What types of actions do you need to avoid in order to get time off? Did you ever witness somebody losing time off for good behavior?
Mish: Fighting
Sally: JUST DONT FIGHT, DISRESPECT, AND FOLLOW ORDERS..
Pace: fights, backtalk to asshole deputies
Baby: Everything do not saying nothing back it is yes mama no sir yes sir. Do not get into any dis agreement with anyone dont do anything out of line, which it everything except sleeping which you can get in trouble for if your not up for roll call. it is worse then the prisoners have it in cuba pretend your in church!
Jamie: fighting getting into trouble writeups
Jessica: Always obey and be respectful to deputies, don't have any contraband and work if they want you to become a worker
Manuel: dont get it with the deputies
LKai: -
Josie: stay out of trouble. there was one girl who quit her jail job and they added 30 actual days to her sentence.
George: Fights and such. If I had gotten into them, any time spent in solitary would have not counted toward the half time and in some cases would have been added to the sentence.
Terry: YOU HAVE TO AVOID ANY DISCIPLINARY ACTION FOR FIGHTING, CONTRABAND, MISCONDUCT,OR JUST BREAKING RULES. LOTS OFF INMATES GET IN TROUBLE, OR PISS OFF THE WRONG OFFICER AND GET THEIR GAIN TIME TAKEN AWAY.
Pebbles: You can't get write up's or fight. Three write up or a fight and you loose your good time. I've seen girls fight or steal and lost all there good time.
Miles: Just follow the rules and your fine. If you were to refuse to do roll call, or go to work that would probably get you some time taken away.
