JM: Did you get off early based on good behavior? Kyle: "Good time" in Jefferson County consisted of as
much as 10 days a
month or as little as 3 depending on behavior,
write ups, etc. Randy: I DID NOT GET ANY TIME OFF FOR GOOD BEHAVIOR Tyler: For me, I was released only when my bond
requirements were completed. Dave: YOU DID GET 2 DAY FOR EVERY THREE THAT YOU SERVED.
JM: What is the most time off you can receive for good behavior? Kyle: I believe now it's up to 12 days a month if
you're a working trustee Randy: ONE DAY FOR TWO SERVED I BELIEVE Tyler: In county as far as I know it might be up to the
judge or when you were sentenced. Dave: ONE DAY FOR EVERY THREE.
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? Kyle: Fights, tattooing, gambling, stealing other's
stealing razors to give personal haircuts, not
be cooperative with
the guards. Yes people lost good time a lot.
Usually they would first
be punished by being taken to the "hole" for a
disciplinary hearing. Randy: YOU HAVE TO AVOID ANY WRITE UPS FOR ANYTHING
INCLUDING BEING VERBALLY OR PHYSICALLY AGRESSIVE
WITH DEPUTIES, FIGHTING, STEALING, AND NOT
FOLLOWING BASIC RULES SUCH AS MAKING BEDS ETC. Tyler: As far as I know it was just following the
rules. No contraband, no causing trouble, no
outburst of any kind, no fighting. The best
thing was to keep to yourself. Dave: BASICALLY TO AVOID LOSING GOOD TIME YOU HAD TO
FOLLOW THE RULES INCLUDING SIMPLE THINGS LIKE
MAKING YOUR BED TO AVOID WRITE UPS. MOST LOST
TIME FOR ARGUING WITH STAFF.
